Especially if space is limited, have you thought about rabbits and/or chickens? Years ago, I had chickens. The biggest challenge for me was keeping the coyotes away. Otherwise, they were easy to keep and we had more eggs than you chould shake a stick at.

Amen.

Yes, I have thought about rabbits and chickens. That's why I mentioned them. I think maybe the jackass has swapped out your meds with good N' plenty again.

I'm also thinking about a few goats. I bet the neighbors will love that.

Heh, the jackass doesn't swap meds. He just takes whatever he wants. What he doesn't know, though, is I like to take a few meds 'n' run 'em up Fred's ass before I leave 'em out in plain sight for the jackass to "borrow".

I've had White Rocks and Leghorns. They're both good layers, but the Leghorns are the best for eggs. The White Rocks lay brown eggs and they tend to be big. Lots o' meat on the White Rocks, too.

If you kept, say, 10-12 hens, you'll have eggs runnin' out your ears. I don't know if you've ever raised chickens before. Just in case you haven't, here's a tip about the eggs - they'll keep a helluva lot longer if you don't wash 'em.

Other than having a bunny for a short while (my neighbor stole it and ate it, I shit you not), I have no experience raising them. Hence, I have no idea if rabbits or chickens cost more to get 'em table-ready. That said, with chickens, you get meat and eggs. Personally, I like chicken better than rabbit, but rabbit ain't bad.

Amen.

If you've only got one meat source in your diet, chicken is the safer choice. Vitamin deficiencies with rabbit.

Heh, I didn't know that about rabbits. Here's an interesting wiki article on rabbit starvation.

Amen.

That's an interesting page. Their figure on the upper limits of protein that the liver can metabolise safely in a day is a bit surprising. 285-365 grams works out to .6-.8 of a pound. I thought it would have been rather higher.

I'm beginning to freak out. This has me worried.
