    Read my post on chickens and hogs. I describe the
    kind of place you need for chickens to have space
    to grow.

    Used to have ducks, including a 1-legged duck named Dudley (lost her leg to a fox). Lost all the ducks eventually to the foxes.
    Used to have a miniature horse, but she died -- we still miss her.

    Oh dear,

    We have 4 foot bird electric fencing for the birds and we put them away every night. The foxes NEVER come during the day, dont know why...

    The goats have six foot fencing. Also, before i had pigs i allways thought that other pigs lived in dirty areas because they were kept in poor condittions, turns out that they make the place muddy, but they are very clean animals. They used to have a huge long grass area, now its just mud.

    Our livestock is kept in the best condittions you can imagine, large amounts of land to roam, no crap, allways fed well, proper fencing, very clean and so on and so forth....

    Guess what I get in return, a nip on the arse by the geese haha!

    Allthough the ducks and chickens do love us :)
    The moment we come into the field they go mad. They all come running to see us and they sit next to us in the sun.

    they were targeted to be destroyed by the "humane" people.
    I have no issue with animal control by any means but to wipe out the entire local population because they are getting into people's trash cans was a bit over the limit in my mind.
    I got a concensus of the locals to agree if the pilfering ways of Rocky and Rascal were eliminated they would call off the mass execution.
    I feed them and now there are no cases of marauding miscreants tipping trash cans in quest of those stiff, stale macdonalds french fries and old rubbery blubbery macaroni.
    only at feeding time will you see them unless they are ill or at life's end.
    We catch the infirm in live traps and take them to the vets for repair.
    When the population increases too much they are relocated to the wilds
    of the Alleghenies.
    over the last 14 years I have been the raccoons custodian there have been many happy and joyful moments and a few very sad times.
    One of the eldest got into some anti-freeze and thought it was a squirrel for awhile. He didnt make it.
    We miss him.

    I've know people who have had coons for pets. They actually make good pets, other than they have hands and know how to use them, and are very smart. You ever try this (which is not recommended, since they are still wild animals) be prepared for the fridge and pantry to be regularly raided. Pound for pound they are some of the best fighting animals, though they don't really have a mean streak. Just don't corner one or make it afraid.
