I am also new to the group. Robin and I have 22 chickens, 4 Easter Eggers, 4 Red Stars, 3 Buff Brahmas, 10 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and one Appenzeler; 6 Nubian goats and a border collie named Sweetie and she does live up to the name!
I am new to the group. I have 20 chickens, 5 turkeys and 11 coturnix quail. I would like to get a couple of milk goats, but would like a lot of input before I commit! Does anyone in the group have experience with goats?
i'm new to the urban farm community!
We keep ducks (34 or so, lots of different breeds but moving into just welsh harlequins), a Dexter Dairy cow, BBW turkeys for the summer, and 3 token chickens.
What's a farm without animals. Whether you are just doing chickens or you are branching out to 'other' farm animals this is the place to discuss it. Chickens take about 5 months to start laying so a spring chicken gets you eggs about September. So just get started.
