That is what I was thinking, You feed them enough that they dont need to cry for more.

My sheep never make a peep! I hear this is a good thing. :)
Maybe that is because you feed them rotting garbage from the garden? ;) :lol:

I've heard fermented foods can paralyze their vocal cords...... :/

Shucks! Should have tried that with my children! :p

Really and truly? I am increasing Ginger's fermented quota immediately! She is the only one it hasn't worked on yet!

Oh, it doesn't work on humans. I eat lots of rotten....er.....fermented foods and drinks, and people say I talk too much....

WHAT!! Really, he doesn't crow? Lucky dog you! I live on a hill and the coop is down the hill so Tex's crows are echoed! :barnie


BTW my sheep are very quiet except if I'm taking too long to prepare their food. :p

Oh, and they also let me know when the horses take themselves on a field trip over to the neighbor's. (Electric wire fence and forests don't go well together...trees and branches falling all the time.)
