In case you read my other thread, we are still up in the air as to whether we will continue to live in this house. In the mean time we are continuing to figure out if the country life is for us. We have bought chicks and are watching them grow. Bunnies, that we won at an auction and now we want to go for something a little bigger.
Last weekend we went to the most unusual thing I have ever seem. It was an auction that sold live farm animals and food, like eggs. I know other people are laughing because it is not unusual at all to them, but it was such a strange and fun experience for our family. It happens every Wed. in this old barn. It is just a crack up watching them hank these bunnies and rooster and hens out of boxes and cages and hold them up to be bid on. everything went CHEAP! We got 4 doz farm eggs for 1.40 a dozen. Around here they go for $3 a doz. Our bunnies were $7 each.
We are thinking of getting either a pig, or a sheep, now. Any thought? Which is easier?Which cost less to raise? Sheep would be for wool. Pig might be for meat, or to be sold later, when it gets bigger, if we can't bare to eat the thing. All the animals can be sold at the auction if we do need to move.
