    @Ron Bequeath that is interesting about the rye. I will have about 50-60 does to freshen next spring and it would sure be nice if they just "slipped right out". I'll have to try it.

    Glad that you are all safe; I can't even imagine going through a hurricane or tornado.

    Just came on to make sure that all you BYHers in Florida are safe. Glad to see you made it through without losing any people or animals. Still a bad storm even though the worst is over for you. Now the clean up. :hugs

    @Ron Bequeath interesting about the rye. I wonder where I can get some. Rye like in rye bread, not rye grass seed, right? Maybe a health store? Or can I order it on line. If it is crop seed, probably can't get it locally. I will check on it. If it is only 1/4 cup serving, it shouldn't take too much for my 4 ewes if I have to order it on line.

    Hi everyone, Dee from mini pigs Australia, thinking of you all, I have some idea what you are all going through, as I live in an area on North Queensland, that cops a cyclone or two every year, we are now approaching that time. When times are tough, we all need to all stick together, in the physical way but mentally as well. Stay strong and keep looking after our wonderful animals, as I know you all will. Lots of love and stay safe.

    @Pastor Dave and @promiseacres and @Bunnylady are the three rabbit members that come to mind. All are quite knowledgeable. Posting in the rabbit section may also get comments from others that I didn’t think of.

    Ron, just be careful about banding too early. If done before the urethra has fully developed it can cause wethers to have calculi stones. It is best to separate and keep doing it as you always have at 12 weeks.

    Grain rye seed but this year the feed store was out so check internet and it wouldnt get to me in time so i used ground bread
    rye on the cow. I'm thinking of planting a 2000 sq ft plot. Of non gmo this coming year. Should give me enough to last the year. Dad said could use it on all types of animals haven't tried it on chickens though, wonder if it would work on sheep, know they had sheep before my time, and he learned from granddad.
