    So far I have chickens and cats. Blame it on my upcoming empty nest, but, more and more I find myself daydreaming about what's next.

    What animals do you have besides chickens, and how well do they get along with each other?

    We have Turkeys, phestants, & Dogs. They all seem to get along just fine, the dogs don't dare bother the chickens, They just run around with them, The phesants. Well they dont like people or other Predators so they fly/run/ect. The turkey doesnt mind the dogs, But the dogs are scared of her, lol. All pets get along perfectly fine here!!

    4 cats, 2 big dogs, 8 chickens, 2 hamsters, fish as of right now. We talked the kids in letting go of the snakes. I'd like to be down 1-2 more cats. We are not replacing any cat losses until we are down to 2. We've had guinea pigs in the past as well. We like having animals here.
