I have a few questions that I feel you all can help with. I currently live on 2 acres. One acre consists of the house, garage, shed and driveway. I have a 10âx24â shed that holds 16 rabbit cages. The other acre is about Â¼ cleared and the rest wooded with brush. There is an old well that I could either run electricity to and hook up a pump or put a hand pump on it. We were hoping to move north on a larger area, but the job switched and now weâll be at this house for another year or so. I now want to get a few more animals but my DW has some reservations (things naturally come from a store). I thought about getting a RI Red roo and some Barred Rock hens (chicks would be sex linked) but they have brown eggs and not white (again âgood eggsâ should be white and store bought). Can I split my rabbit barn in half and use one end for chickens without bringing in disease? Also, I want to get a few pigs (probably pot belly) to fence in the wooded acre. I think my biggest question is how to work with my DW on this. She thinks a farm needs to have a lot of acreage so that it isnât near the house. I really feel like I have a great set up on the extra acre. Any ideas on how to set up a âpicture perfectâ small farm on the extra acre or how to work on getting the DW to see the homesteading outlook would be greatly appreciated!
