    I know this is backyard chickens - and I have already posted this in backyard herds Michigan section - but hoping to spread the word as much as possible. Please feel free to delete this if it is not allowed, but we are getting desperate! Located in Shaftsburg/Perry Michigan.

    Unfortunately we have some sad news. Apparently after having our little mini-farm for over a year, the county has decided that we are not 'zoned' for farm animals and has ordered us to remove our goat family from our property. We are also in the midst of relocating out of state, so you can imagine our frustration and disappointment! So with deep regret, we are offering our entire herd for sale and need them to go to their new homes ASAP - all offers will be considered however we would like to get about $2000 for the herd. The herd consist of 7 does, 2 bucks, and 1 wether. Most of them are registered, or can be registered. Some placed very well at fair this year and come from great milking lines. We have Rosasharn, Cesars Villa, Maple Ridge, Irish Whispers, and Kyeema Ridge lines.
    3 does - ADGA registered
    1 doeling (born 7/12) - registerable but we have not registered her yet
    3 does - unregistered but from great milking lines!
    1 Buck - registered
    1 buckling (born 6/21) - registerable but we have not registered him yet
    1 wether - wonderful boy but wethers can not be registered. He came with 3 of the girls that we got and is their little buddy!
    Two of the does have been bred to our buck. He also got out of the pen one time and we are unsure if he got any of the others. Two of the does are also still in milk and we have gotten up to a quart a day from them. Need to sell ASAP - please if interested come to us as all offers will be considered. Unfortunately we are not able to ship, so would need to be local pickup.

    Thank you to anyone that can help spread the word! And... we have already tried the Michigan Right to Farm act with them - they are telling us that only has to do if you are zoned agriculture! We believe it to be a load of BS because if you are already zoned agriculture, why would you have a problem?

    I am sorry - I thought that was in the listing. They are all Nigerian Dwarf. I have not done the testing on them, however all the breeders that I got them from had done testing on their herds. We were planning on having the testing done the first of the year on our whole herd, but due to recent circumstances that can't be done!
