    That's awesome!!! :bow: If I ever move out to my property full-time, I'm gonna raise me some chickens so I can have fresh eggs in the morning, too. I don't know about pigs, though. Aren't they a lot of work? Do you do the butchering yourself?

    Ah the pig was pretty easy to raise, just got a little out of control towards the end he was getting big,I had a friend of mine who is a butcher come out and pop him. Real quick and clean. Chickens on the other hand can be a PITA sometimes. Heres a link to a great site for them though it was were I learned everything I know about them...Backyardchickens.com:wink1:

    Yeah, but damn they are smart and there is no stopping their hunger, mine started pushing dirt up onto the hot line until it was grounded out so bad it wouldn't shock him anymore, I went out the garage door one night to shut the big door and found him trying to get into the house, scared the bajesus outta me...:haha:

    My Mom and Dad were from the area just west of Tellico. We had pigs, chickens, milk cow, beef cattle, and a large garden. Boy, did I work my a$$ off as a kid. Great lifestyle though!!!

    My brother raises Scottish Highland cattle in Bend, Or. He just got back from the State fair in Puyallup, where his bull took grand Champion, Grand Champion in Yakima in '03 too. He took fourth at the Nationals in Colorado last year. He'll sell you a cow, steer or bull. It's excellent beef. I just visited him, brought home a dozen eggs from his chickens, waaaaay better than store bought. The breeder he buys from lives at the bottom of Mount Adams. Where you at in Washington?

    Seriously, he'll sell you whatever, or hook you up with his breeders who live in WA. My little bro, he's a trip. Born and raised in San Francisco, cranked out with some stupid bitch for a couple of years, homeless, now 7 years later he raises award winning cattle. Good for him. We went hunting in Mosier for deer season, while we were gone, his old lady bought him a pretty nice '81 K5, she talked the dude down from $2600 to $1400. Saweeet deal! I'm trying to get him to get a membership. Anyway, they have a little website:

    cascade highlanders

    If you are interested, or just want a little more info, shoot me a PM.

    I used to raise My own pigs about 12 years ago. I used to cross durocs with yorkshires and get some massive pigs. Oh and the bacon was kickass. The butcher would smoke them first and it had the best taste. My biggest problem was I started out with 2 and about 10 months later I had 17 of the bastards. I was so sick and tired of eating pork for about two years I didn't even want to look at it.
