I guess if you have goats, you have to have chickens, geese, and cats too 🙂

I have Buff Orpington and White Brahma chickens, as well as Pilgrim geese.  I allow them to free-range most of the time.  They help keep the bugs and weeds down which is wonderful!  The chickens are great egg layers!  One hen has recently decided to go broody (in the fall!).  I’ve decided to let her try to hatch out around 20 eggs.  We’ll see how this turns out.  They are suppose to hatch any day now.
