I'm very curious as to who is keeping and breeding what. Is anyone finding alternative livestock to be profitable? We've figured out how to incorporate our parrots into a fairly profitable venture. I do manage a petstore and can sell our birds directly to the company, but even if I didn't, I still think we could come out ahead. It's taken years of work, most of which I considered it to be a hobby. For several years, they've been paying their own bills, but this year we finally sold enough babies to save up a respectable down payment on the 3 acres we just bought. We also have rabbits, chickens, chinchillas, guinea pigs, ferrets, many reptiles and amphibians, two aquariums, Sam (our beloved Great Pyrenees) a tabby cat and a serval cat. (I do not recommend these as pets. He was a rescued animal.) When we move, we want to have some type of goat, probably alpines or nubians, and I can't wait to get an emu and some blue slate turkeys. What do you have?
