Born and raised in the Oklahoma panhandle, raising these critters to the best of my knowledge and ability.
I try to raise each breed to there specific standers to have quality heathy animals.
I concentrate mostly on the Dutch rabbits and do a lot with the Nubian milk goats.
Now I raise a litter of puppies every year that are from health tested parents.
Someday I hope to have a tiny herd of White Dexter & Mini Hereford cows!
I started raising rabbits in February 2017, though I'd had some in the past 2017 is when I decided to officially start raising them. They were just mixes then, but those mixes started all of this. They saved my sanity after the big fires that year also. Got my first Dutch in February 2018, first litter was born April 6th 2018, and first pedigreed litter was born May 5th 2019.
I started with Blacks and Blues and mostly wanted to do Golden Yellows, but the good Lord new I needed the Chocolates and I wouldn't change a thing!
I raise them for Show and they are my babies, but I'm not apposed to the use of them as meat although I don't consume them myself.
My two main goats where also born in 2017, Beauty in February and Sunny in April!
Sunny's momma Missy picked me as her person, Sunny was my first keeper and Beauty was the first I ever picked from a different herd. We raise them for milk for ourselves, but can't keep them all, so we started raising them to their breed standard and I'm trying to get them weather and parasite resistant, It's been a challenge but I'm seeing improvement!
In 2024 I should be raising turkeys in Chocolate/Chocolate painted, Blue/Black/Self Slate, Sweetgrass and Slated Sweetgrass. Might get quail, pheasant and pigeons too.
In that time I'll hopefully have Orpington chickens in chocolate and buff along side my Easter Egger/Olive Eggers!
THANK YOU FOR VISITING!
