Hi Yet another Newbie. My partner and I have lived in a Renovation Project, in the middle of France, since Nov 2003. We have about 30 assorted chickens plus numerous chicks at odd times of the year. There's also 1 Drake and 4 female ducks and a few pigeons. We have Ouessant sheep (pronounced Wes-sont). They are (apparently) the only true, naturally mini sheep in the world. Foxy (Border Collie), Paws (Belgian Braccos - Belgian hunting dog). Charley and Theiving B are the farm cats. I also have 1 male and 3 female ferrets and (this year) only 1 baby They don't call me KrazeyLady for nothing.
