Livestock

(1/1)

:
Is there anyone besides me interested in raising animals here in the
islands or home in the world.† For me this is the world, so I guess
it is a crazy question, hopefully you all get what I am asking.
We have a mama turkey hen with Keats.† We have three
mama chickens with little ones, we have four Texas hens with
a papa in site for breeding.† We have pigeons galore.† I also have
a few quail which I am letting go.† When these die off, that will be
the end of the quail.† I enjoy the chickens.† The manure goes on
the compost pile.† The compost goes on the garden, and the
garden seem to be doing well.† We are also hoping to plant some
more fruit trees, but we will leave that for another post.
Hopefully the dry weather will stay with us a while longer.
Blessing to all,
JJ

PS, this spell checker is great, jj

Hi JJ,

I like your topic here. I am also person who like rearing animals , however I have yet to have a farm. Used to keep pets before. But I think they will be moving this thread here and there for a while before any good conversatin can start for this :)

I am sure I am not the only one wanting to raise livestock.† We have enough
chickens now to get our own eggs almost every day.† We are raising goats too.
We have started to eat a few of the chickens and the meat is good, the taste
is great, and because the birds are young, the meat is almost tender, it does need
to be chewed.† The stock is great for soup.† We are hoping to get a pig about a
month after the little gals are born.† We reserved a pair of females..†
Our dog Tubby continues to try to spook the birds and the goats.† We have
picked a boy friend for the two does.† We are looking for a pair or trio of
rabbits.† Our ducks continue to lay eggs and the turkey poults are doing well.
We have chicken chicks coming out of our ears.† We hope to be self sufficient
in chicken meat in a few months.† Not bad for a few sacks of rice, rice given to
us by folks that use the land.† We should probably sell the rice, but this is a lot
more fun.†
Anyone care to give a few tips on raising animals in the tropics.

We are almost done with the quail.† We expect the last five quail to die off soon.† We will replace them with
guinea hens, another bird that has poor mothering instincts, but one that would be more in keeping with the
climate and conditions in the Philippines.
We now have nine baby Muscovy ducks,† This type of duck is a good mother, does not like that water all
that much and lays only a few eggs.†
We hope to expand the raising of the guinea hens and ducks, level off with the chickens and let the
pigeons, turkeys and quail go.†
Regards,
JJ
