    Hi everyone! My name is Nicki, I'm from south central wisconsin. I was born and raised on a farm. We had horses and raised veal. We always had chickens and of course cats [​IMG], my mom also used to raise Austrailian Sheppards. I did 4-H, showed sheep, chickens, rabbits as well as other projects. My husband and I now have a small farm where we raise a variety of chickens, ducks (muscovy and others), dutch and new zealand rabbits, and American Black Belly Barbados Sheep. We also have 2 geese, a few turkeys, cats, and our dogs (coonhounds and a rat terrier). Occasionally we have pigs that we raise for butchering. We love having animals! This place feels like a zoo towards the end of summer. We sell a majority of things before winter at a local sale and also again in the spring if we have anything. It's not profitable since the feed costs more than we make but we still love what we do! My animals are my job and I wouldn't have it any other way.
