My neighbors and my flock were starting to merge, and his didn't look good. I took mine over to a friends in order to concentrate getting his back up to par. He has to many and can't keep up with them.
The only critters we have right now is Chickens, ducks, geese, a dog, and a cat. My daughter will be getting another cat once she finishes her cat project book for 4-H. She will be showing the cat and some chickens next year.
We have always had them, so right at 30 years. We started out with white face when we lived in W.Va. Sold them and moved to Va. then I bought a Jersey and then a second. Sold them, total of 6 (3 being milked by hand) to some guy that offered me an amount I could not say no to. Now we have longhorns, which are a very cool breed.
