    Need help sourcing cage materials

    I'll definitely check that out when I'm off work tomorrow! We only have one dump that recycles and they don't usually have stuff like that from what I've seen.

    UTI treatment questions

    I haven't seen any here. Normally there's some in our front yard but maybe the goats have already got to it when they get put out in the side yard (not my goats) I'll ask my friend and see if she's got any growing around her.

    UTI treatment questions

    Can I toss garlic in her water? I've done it before and they usually won't drink it first day but by second they will. I'll order some dandelion as none has started growing around here yet and all I've currently got has sat in alcohol for a while tincturing. I have a willow tree here, I'll see...

    UTI treatment questions

    I've looked and looked and can't find anything about what to give a rabbit with a possible UTI other than vet. With all this Sars scare that's just not possible for me. I was wondering what might help from home, she's been in pain relief meds and gas drops (both infant) for the past few days and...

    Need help sourcing cage materials

    I'll definitely be checking that out! Seems like I've had that site before and lost it who knows how long ago, now to start slowly stock piling until I can build everything.

    Need help sourcing cage materials

    I was about to start slowly building some new cages, something I've needed to do since I started basically. I know how I want to build it and was gonna use yardgate wire from Amazon as it's held up well when I used it in the past. Well prices have skyrocketed on that wire and the 1"x1" wire is...

    Goat kid foaming from mouth and nose after pellets.

    Hahahaha! I could've never ate those two babies, I fell in love with them the first time I saw them, I love their momma and her personality. I'm glad I was able to give them to someone who knew more than I did and was able to give them so much space and freedom, I've had lamb before and...

    Hay nets for rabbits

    This is a great idea, I'll keep that in mind when I build new cages! Seems like I saw a video of someone doing it but I couldn't find it or remember the dimentions. I've tried this before and it resulted in a lot, and I do mean A LOT, of wasted hay from them climbing on it and peeing and...

    Hay nets for rabbits

    I feel silly for even asking this.. But if I bought a hay net for the colony, would they just chew holes through it? What if I made a hay net out of some kind of wire? What kind of wire would I use? What guage? Has anyone trooped this before? I'd like something I can also make a downsized...

    Goat kid foaming from mouth and nose after pellets.

    Yeah she eventually stopped, I think she was also eating other things that she shouldn't have been. I gave her and her brother to a rescue where they're living a way better life than I could've ever gave them here and she hasn't foamed since she went. I'll try to upload the pics here one day if...

    Goat kid foaming from mouth and nose after pellets.

    So my little 1.5month old (I've been told) Dwarf Pygmy Nubian/Lamancha cross. Mom is a Pygmy Nubian and Dad is Lamancha/Nubian. They've been eating pellets fine since about 2weeks old. Last week she was eating and kinda started coughing/choking, strained to pee and then started screaming, I...

    I GOT GOATS!

    That is true lol, I'll go check out the library and see what I can find. Sometimes I forget things are so easy. Which I guess it's easy to forget as I'm 30 min from everything. I gotta get feed tomorrow so I'll hit the library on my way home :)

    ISO: Hay near Burnsville NC

    I pay $5 for a square bale currently but am willing to pay up to $8 ($8 is feed store price, but I'd like to find something of better quality) I've been buying 3 bales at a time otherwise the 4th typically molds. I'm buying for goats and rabbits, so preferably no alfalfa.

    I GOT GOATS!

    I love listening to the boys whine cause the girls are really in heat and they can't get to them as well lol. I'll definitely have to check out that goat forum. Don't know if I'll be able to afford two books right now. Kinda surprised the boyfriend lemme keep two goats, he says it's just adding...

    I GOT GOATS!

    Well this is a fun story! My boyfriends step-dad (We'll call him Jim) has goats. It started as 2 females, then not long after I moved in Jim added Pumpkin (our first male) Obviously they had babies, one set of twins from Buttercup, a boy ( Pumpkin Jr. aka Jr.) and a girl (Fluffernut), the other...

    How do I start a garden?

    @MaggieJ Once I have my own property I'll definitely do more soil research, for now, I'm trying to do anything that keeps me from having to plant my plants in the ground. I've got a mix of invasive plants, and lack of space, so I really wanna do the straw bale garden like this...

    How do I start a garden?

    Before I start, I've linked everything below. So, I've never started my own garden, I have no clue where to start and last year everything I grew died after it sprouted. This year I plan to start over with all new everything, but I have no clue how much to get, what brands are better than what...

    Is it worth it to breed and have someone else dispatch?

    They aren't my chickens or goats or they would've been gone years ago haha. I want ducks, maybe a few goats, definitely pigs if I can find land with woods. I'm working on finding some decent fencing to put around all my plants. Last year a chicken ate all my raspberries. She would let them get...

    Is it worth it to breed and have someone else dispatch?

    Oh man, goats and chickens have been my biggest problem with gardening, when I own my own property (currently live with boyfriend and his parents) I will either not have goats and chickens or have them far far away from my garden lol. I do have a huge pile of rabbit poop mixed with hay that's...
