    We have 120 chicks right now.

    Yes, we have a dairy cow, a 30 year old horse, 130 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, six barn cats, a dog and two lambs coming in April or beyond. :)

    We also raise turkeys but they won't be coming until next month.

    Yes, we sell most of our products.

    Eclipse a.k.a Miss Moo is our cow
    Blaze is our horse
    The laying hens do not have names yet but if my 13 yod has anything to do with it she'll have them all named.
    We tell the children not to name the broilers since they are for eating. ;)
    Cats are: Princess Moonstone, Severus, Pumpkin, Selene, Freckles and Badger
    Padfoot is our Newfie/Retriever more like a Newfie in looks and like a Retriever when it comes to birds and poultry!
    Lambs are Juno and ????

    :) Thanks for asking!

    Oh I forgot the geese, but they were just picked up today! They have yet to be named. It's being discussed.

      No not really, surprisingly. They seem to realize we are raising food. Last year we didn't prepare our five year old well enough about the broilers and he had two favorites, that's why we made the suggestion not to name them. They have more of an issue when the animals get sick or die from other causes.

        I think they are considered red sex link (our laying hens). Our broilers are half Cornish Rock and half Freedom Ranger.

        They are not our favorite but they are producers and they will be for our egg business. We won't get our family flock until next month, as chicks. Well, we sell their eggs too but we call them our family flock because we raise them from chicks and they are usually more people friendly. We like the Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, Black Australorp and Easter Egg layers. My 8yod will be getting Silkies as well.

            lol! That does happen! We have only tried incubating eggs once and were not very good at it. Too many hands in the pot so to speak.
