Animals On The Farm

Adding Animals To Your Farm.

Are you an impulse animal buyer?

I try to promote careful and caring consideration of taking on animals to any homestead setting. For 10 years I was a gardener/produce farmer. I researched and thought about taking on ANY animal for about five years. I could easily be an impulse animal buyer. I adore animals. That is how I got Teddy twelve years ago.  


But it takes education. I wont take on animals unless I study up on them for a long time to learn all the possible, "what if's," I am not an impulse animal buyer in reality. That is not a fair practice to the animals.

Don't get me wrong, I now know what is involved with chickens and I don't regret getting them at all. I have had a flock of laying hens for just starting year three. Started with 8, then it grew to 12 and next week I will be bringing home 24 little babies. I love having them on my farm. It made what were just gardens, a farm, at least for me. Before I was just growing veggies, but with chickens around, it really feels like a farm.
