Livestock are an essential part of the homestead, providing milk, eggs, meat, fur, fiber, protection, labor, companionship, and just plain fun. Here at the homestead we currently have dogs, cats, llama, goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, muscovies, & geese. (The guinea fowl are gone, and we are looking into turkeys and quail as the next likely additions, and I keep waffling on feeder pigs.)
We’ve divided these into pages for pets, herds, and flocks to make things simpler.
