    Worst aspects of having goats?

    I've had Nigerian Dwarf goats for about a year. We live in hot, humid Tennessee. So far, I've found parasites and the threat of dewormer resistance to be the biggest drawback of owning goats.

    Hello from Southeast Tennessee - the land of What the H... is with this weather?

    Hello! We are in Southeast Tennessee also! I love the title of your thread. I ask myself that question all the time. LOL. We have a small property--5 acres but only about 2.5-3 acres are properly fenced. We have had chickens, quail, American Guinea Hogs (feeders not breeders, haha), and Nigerian...

    Newbie from KY

    Hello from Tennessee! What kinds of animals are you planning to keep? :) I started out with chickens, then moved to pigs, quail, and goats. I found myself stretched too thin however, so I'm focusing on just goats and chickens for now.

    Husband wanted to try out turkeys...

    Turkeys sound interesting. If I had the coop space I would love to get a few someday.

    New here

    Hello from Tennessee. We have goats and chickens (and pigs...for a while longer anyway). I hope you get an answer to your rabbit question. There are lots of knowledgeable and helpful people on the forum. We have a single indoor pet rabbit (that turned up under our porch and we adopted), but I...

    Here from BYC.

    That sounds exciting! Keep us updated! Mine will be a year old in April. I was hoping to breed them in the spring, but I think they may be a bit small yet.

    Here from BYC.

    Congratulations on your new doelings! They are pretty. What are your plans for your does? Do you want to milk them someday or are they strictly pets? Last June, we bought 3 Nigerian does, and this Christmas we got 2 bucklings so we can breed and milk the females (hopefully!) when they are old...

    Fresh meat here

    We have ours for feeders. They are a small breed, but we don't eat tons of pork, and still have meat left over from the gilt we processed last year (March 2021). Everyone has different needs though; they're not everyone's cup of tea. They are docile, which was important to me as I need to be...

    Fresh meat here

    Hello and welcome from Southeast Tennessee! Congratulations on your move. Your new property looks lovely. :) We are only about 5 miles from the GA line. Right now we have chickens, goats, and pigs. I have guinea hogs, a smaller docile heritage breed. They are a lot of fun, but I'm probably...
