    Yep, been there with questions about rabbits before I started my meat endeavor with them. It's pretty quiet. I haven't been there in a while.

    I am there a lot. I try to comment as much as i can. It is very slow because they dont have many members. BUT the members there are very knowledgeable. I usually just post about sheep but sometimes goats and others just to keep everything moving

    I was thinking about you last night watching a program on aggressive dogs. They listed the GSD near the top of their list of most aggressive. I was thinking...those poor dogs stuck with ignorant owners.

    Yep [​IMG] I breed rabbits for meat. I had two litters so far and have butchered them, as well as three adults that didn't work out for breeding for various reasons. Because someone in my HOA complained about my buns we have now a split farming co-op with some friends of ours. They keep the buck for us and and I keep on breeding doe (maybe two [​IMG]) and I do the breeding and raising until they are six weeks old and then they go to the friends place for finishing and butchering. [​IMG]

    Oh..the program with the aggro dog list. Eh sometimes those things upset me, but other times I think the bad publicity might just keep some people from owning a GSD [​IMG]

    Yep, I've been to BackyardHerds. I post there a lot. It is rather quiet and it often takes a little while to get an answer to a question. But there are lots of smart folks on there that know there stuff (especially goats). But you know what? More members=More Questions which means a not so quiet forum! So come on folks, join BackYardHerds!!

    Yes, I've been there. Not many people but still a great resource. Every time I ask a question, they provide me with feedback. Also a lot of great info in different threads. I like going over there to read information.
