• My chickens were attacked by neighbors dog my dog has never messed with them and they are scared of her now. How can I get them to trust her?

    Best answer: It's very sad when that happen. Some animals just cannot reason the different between a foe and a friend that look similar. I know a Dalmation that now has to be muzzled as she attacks all small animals such as cats and little dogs after being hurt by just one little animal. Your chickens are not capable... show more
    Best answer: It's very sad when that happen. Some animals just cannot reason the different between a foe and a friend that look similar. I know a Dalmation that now has to be muzzled as she attacks all small animals such as cats and little dogs after being hurt by just one little animal. Your chickens are not capable of distinguishing between the harmless friendly dog and the bad, chicken hurting dog. Perhaps after a long time they might regain confidence, but chickens are only so smart I'm afraid.

  • Is 1/3rd of an acre enough for even 2 sheep?

    Best answer: If it's all decent grazing pasture, then 1/3 acre is enough for two. But if part of it has trees or otherwise lacks grass, then 1/3 acre is a bit too small. Also, you will need to supplement with alfalfa. I would regard just two sheep as too small a group, you don't get the economy of scale. Maybe you could... show more
    Best answer: If it's all decent grazing pasture, then 1/3 acre is enough for two. But if part of it has trees or otherwise lacks grass, then 1/3 acre is a bit too small. Also, you will need to supplement with alfalfa. I would regard just two sheep as too small a group, you don't get the economy of scale. Maybe you could rent the sheep for a few days each month.
    I recommend you get an experienced local sheep farmer to look over your place and discuss this with you.

    I'm applying for a small research position at a watershed near home. I came up with the idea of using a quote from wet hot American summer. Hello Dr. _____, My name is______, I am from ______ New Jersey. State Bird: The Mosquito, and as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class A environmentalist. There's the risk of him not knowing what it means, but at the same time if he is from new jersey, then he will get the reference? IS this too risky? I know the movie is crude, but that's one of the best lines.

  • When they take bee's honey for us, do they leave enough honey for their babies?

    Best answer: Two types of bee keepers, those that keep bees for their value, and those that just want the honey. Honey is the bees food supply, you take all of it, you have to provide a sugar water(nectar) if your bees are to survive and that is nothing as healthy as natural honey.

    Best answer: Two types of bee keepers, those that keep bees for their value, and those that just want the honey.
    Honey is the bees food supply, you take all of it, you have to provide a sugar water(nectar) if your bees are to survive and that is nothing as healthy as natural honey.
    Bees do produce more than they need, why we can glean a little honey from them without denting the colony.
    I kept a few bees, just because it is cool and I could get a little extra honey form them, but 5 populated hives is not a lot.
    A fantastic hobby and great for their conservation.
    Because of pesticides, and parasites, bee populations are declining, and they are loosing hectares of foraging grounds to concrete jungles. If keeping bees is not your thing, you can help them by planting the sort of vegetation they gather their pollen from. Bees are mans true friend, be kind to them.
