    ...when you realize that despite adding two extra goat pens, you still don't have enough of them [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] I have a similar situation with my chickens. I'm building some new pens in the barn. DH asked me if that meant I was getting rid of the coops I have now. I just looked at him and said, "um, no" [​IMG]

    I know the feeling also. My husband wanted to downsize after our cat died in January. Weeelllll, we had 18 total animals then (cat, dog, chickens, guineas, and a rabbit), and have 62 now (cats, dogs, chickens, guineas, ducks, and pigs). OOPS!! Hee, Hee, Hee

    PS I just added another 400 square feet of outdoor chicken pens 2 weeks ago for when they have to be kept safe while we aren't home. They have a grand total of 1236 square feet of predator proof pens outdoors, and 256 square feet of indoor space. Between the hawks and stray dogs lately no one is safe when we aren't here.
