The big farm animals do not apply to me, but I think rabbits, chickens and ducks are pretty doable!


I can't vouch for everyone else but my brain works in lists and highlights  :)   So this was perfect to me! 

And I love how you broke down every aspects of each animal. Made my life easier in selecting what I want to raise in the very near future


LOve this!!  Very concise and informative!

@SuperLise Thank you.  It took alot of will power not to just fly off and keep going on the chickens, ducks, and rabbits.  I know you began as a reader on my blog.  How do you like the podcast now?

@SuperLise  I am glad you like it.  I wasn't sure it would be received well since it was very "listy".
