Super cute animals!
OMG OMG I LOVE HAMILTON! You are my new favorite farmer!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
We do too! I am super excited it is coming to Boston soon, I can’t wait to actually see it! Me & my kids are obsessed!
We cannot afford tickets.. But i listen all the time! Im kinda upset now that i listened to the last two songs …. 🙁 Hamilton cheated on his wife and all that, but In the end he proved his true love for her.. so cute! Heart Hamilton!
❤️ a complicated man but gotta love the music!
Does Alexander Hamil-Duck like Eliza Hamil- Duck 😀 Will you have an Aaron Burr duck?
Lol Alexander LOVES Eliza, follows her around everywhere. Peggy & Angelica tend to hang out together a lot. No more boy ducks for us – I don’t want any trouble (or duels!)
Haha Never thought of that! Did you know that Laurence is also Philip? He ‘dies’ twice! And Peggy is the woman in ‘Say no to This.’
Your blue swedish is beautiful! Where do I find one with colors like hers?
Thank you! We got her from a local feed store. Blue is a color that doesn’t breed true so when you breed blue animals some will be blue, some will be black and then some will be “splash” like our Swedish. Sort of a spotty blue and white, with blue birds it’s always a luck of the draw!
I am interested in purchasing 2 giant angota rabbits for fiber. I do not wish to breed or show. I crochet and would love pets. I am in Nw ga. Do you know anyone who sells giant angota rabbits as close to this area as I can get? No one in the USA rabbit breeders for in Tennessee or Al still does. Thanks so much for your help.
Hi Janice, I am sorry I don’t know anyone in that area that breeds giants. The woman I got my english from breeds giantd. She is in MA, but I am pretty sure she ships her rabbits if you can’t find anyone nearby. She is quite involved with the breeding community (she is actually the founder of the giant breed), so she also might know a breeder in your area. This is her website: http://www.evergreenfarm.biz/
They are all beautiful, but I’m curious… are the fur babies all rescues? if so, Thank You. I’m a huge believer in rescuing from shelters/abusive situations
Hi Janet – yes the cats and dogs are all rescues 🙂 Definitely the best way to go!
Your farm looks amazing
Thank you Belle! 🙂
We just started raising rabbits and we are also in the northeast – aka tick and Lyme central. I’d like to let the rabbits have some time hopping around and grazing in a grass enclosure, but I don’t want them getting ticks and of course Lyme. Any experience with this?
Ticks can certainly be a concern. While rabbits are unlikely to get sick from Lyme disease, they can act sort of like a carrier, and could pass it to you through their urine. There are other diseases and infections that could be transmitted to your rabbit from a tick. And of course they can physically carry ticks back into your home where they could bite you or one of your other pets. So it’s definitely best to be vigilant about ticks. Keep the grass in & surrounding your rabbit’s area short. Check your rabbit for ticks daily & remove them promptly with either a tick remover tool or tweezers. Pay extra attention around the ears, face, & dewlap (this is where they are most likely to hide). Do NOT ever use flea collars or topical medicines on your rabbit that are meant for cats & dogs. These can be fatal. You can speak with your vet for rabbit specific preventative medicines if you are finding ticks on your rabbits. My rabbits have lived outdoors for going on our fifth season now and I’ve never really had a problem with ticks on them though
I love your ducks they are all very beautiful. I had a question though. If I wanted a smaller chicken that I could keep indoors that did not lay a lot of eggs which one of of these would you recommend personally?
Hi Jocelyn – if you are going for just a tiny, adorable chicken I would suggest a Mille Fleur d’Uccle or a Polish. They are both adorable and have lots of personality, they do lay eggs but not as reliably as other breeds. Keep in mind you will need diapers for them living indoors as chickens can’t be trained to use a litter box and can’t “hold it” until outside time like dogs would
I especially love Sansa she is soooooo beautiful!
Hi! I love your animals! They are so cute!!! I was hoping that you could answer two questions. I just added three new ducks to be friends with my other duck. They are all rescued so I don’t know their ages except for one, including the original. I have a male and female Pekin, a male Blue Swedish, and a female Cayuga duck. The female white Pekin is laying eggs every day, the Cayuga duck isn’t laying, even though we were told to watch for eggs. Should I be concerned that she isn’t laying, or is she a seasonal layer? Second, the males are always chasing each other, and my usually docile male Blue Swedish won’t stop pinching the male Pekin. Do males always do this, and is there a way to fix this? (Sorry I guess that was four questions. LOL)
Thank you! With not knowing their age, that definitely makes it tricky. As they get older they lay less and less eggs, especially in the winter. Also Pekins are super reliable layers where Cayugas are only fair layers. So that all sounds normal. Your boys behavior is also normal. They need to work out who is going to be in charge. They should settle down before too much longer and they can all be one flock. You can expect occasional tiny fights with the boys now and then (especially in the spring/summer mating season), but once you get past this introduction period things should get better 🙂
all of your animals are adorable but Zoey’s smile is truly the cherry on top! So darn cute!
awww thank you! her smile definitely brightens my days!
Thank you for the information on outdoor living space for rabbits, I’m designing and setting up for the first time.
that is great, good luck!
