Just call me Ellie Mae.... updated with picture.

Post by chelle on Tue Jun 22, 2010 12:08 am

okay, so y'all know that I have 3 grown hogs for breeding, 1 yearling hog for butcher and 8 babies that will be butchered.

about 10-12 chickens,

23 chicks that just hatched in the last few days.
and a few dozen more that I hope hatch-

7 ducks

12 outside rabbits
7 brand new kits born today with more expected-
and one in the house

a horse and a half

a fainting goat

and a blind calf.

There is the simese/manx cat

2 blue healer dogs

(thats 69 1/2 animals if you lost count)

I KNOW there are some baby crawfish in one of the fish tanks, and I have one tank that produces guppies like a freakin fish factory.

and our new addition a genuine Horny Toad. who only eats harvester ants and meal worms. so of course we now have an ant farm.

Well, tonight I got a call- my husbands cousin has a 2 month old baby coon- The wife doesnt have time for him, she has a full time job and needs someone to take him off her hands.

SO- now I have a kitten coon.
that is still on a bottle.

I'll try to get pictures tomorrow. He is VERY scared. The kids are just too much for him just yet. but he wants out of his carrier SOOOO badly. LOL

I swear I don't know how you do it. And I'm so not jealous of all the work that it takes to keep them all up. But I am jealous of the fresh eggs. I used to have a neighbor who had hens and would sell the eggs. They just taste better, don't they?

OH lordy karen. they are 1000 times better. and honestly, guinny (guinney.. whatever) eggs are even better. Mycousin has some, I dont yet.

And eating a homegrown chicken - its amazing. I fried up a few the other night and sent home a half breast with my MIL, not only is this thing bigger than 3 of the ones you buy, it tastes amazing. She couldnt belive how good it tasted. I can remember what chicken used to taste like as a kid, it doesnt taste like that anymore, but this does. only better. LOL rich and it doesnt even need seasoning. honestly.

ROFLMAO! right now he is on the back of my recliner- knotting up my hair... he is a rough little devil.

he is learning to use the litter box, and loves to play- he whines if you put him in his cage.

He wants to be as high as possible, so I am trying to child proof my house up high.

Its like a combo between a newborn and a two year old. he needs the attention of a newborn, but acts like a two year old. literly into EVERYTHING.

and climbs EVERYTHING.

It's so cute!

But I am not jealous. Right now I have 2 dogs, 7 puppies, 3 tame cats, 3 kittens, and 3 stray cats that show up for food but won't let me pet them. The strays are going hungry right now because I can't afford to feed them. Oh and I have a few fish but they aren't doing too well. We let Zoe buy some of the feeder goldfish every now and then and one by one they drop off. But there is a healthy larger goldfish and a healthy algae eater.

I'm getting ready to give the pups to the pet shop and get my dog and at least one of the cats fixed. I'd fix them all if I could afford it. I love baby animals but I can't keep them all and can't afford to feed and medicate them while they're getting big enough to give away.

The raccoon is so cute! They just look so whimsical. I had a sick child out on the living room couch one night and there was a raccoon peeking in the window. I tried like crazy to wake him up so he could see it, but he was in a feverish coma or something.

Not jealous, though. We had so many pets when we were young. My mom never said no. But now, all I can wonder is...did our house smell, and we were just immune to it? Delayed embarrassment!

Haha Lori! I know that feeling! That coon is sooo darn adorable Chelle! I can't wait to read about his adventures on your blog though!

We have two dogs... a foxhound and an annoying little stinky pug... and a ferret... who stinks to high heaven!

I sooo want to taste one of those homegrown chickens but I sure don't want to be raising one... These three animals all by themselves drive me slightly insane!

Connie, my kids want a ferret SOOOo bad!!

Iam honestly not sure I will be able to keep him. they are always wild, and honestly, my kids are just too much for anything. Even the dogs. LOL

My SIL wants him if I dont. And that might be what I have to do. Either that or build a HUGE cage outside. and I'm talking 15X15 minimum.

He is cute though- and they really do chatter like they did in the dan ackroyd, ... dadgum. who is the fat guy?? crap... anyway, that movie, where they went on vacation. and dan ackroyd was the BIL. when they get in the trash?? they really chatter like that. LOL

Chelle, say NO to the ferret. They honestly do smell....to me. The guys don't seem to be able to smell it like I do. They smell musky. Cute as heck, and they are so funny because they play and jump into stuff, but I really wish DS would get rid of his. Oddly, he keeps telling me about people who are giving their ferrets away. Gee, wonder why?

Lori, you can get some drops I think that keeps their smell at a minimum. and they can take baths.

I dont want another animal. honestly. I cant turn one down, but I dont want another one.

BR said no to the ferrett, and to all rodents. and the rabbit is fixing to go back outside. They stink. badly.

you have to clean their cage like 3 tims a day. I cant take it anymore.

I dont have enough cages outside, he is a male, and I dont need another male for breeding. So, I'm trying to wait out till it gets cool again so I can do some butchering and get some cage room.

About the only things I dont mind anymore are the reptiles and the fish. Everything else makes a huge mess. shedding and such. I think after the dogs are gone I'll have to burn the house down to get rid of the hair...

I could have told you rabbits stink . but they CAN be litter box trained. Ferrets are smelly, but like skunks can be descented......no way would I have one inside, they freak me out.
