    Hi all. Im an ex sailor and adapting my knowledge on prior pets (parrots and mini rex) to raise chickens and meat rabbits to be more self sustaining. I live on 5 acres in Albuquerque's East Mountains with my girlfriend with one golden laced wyandotte roo, three silver laced wyandotte hens, three jumbo french guineas, a mini aussie, an aussie and a great dane. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
