Hi Karl, I just did an Animal Roll Call over on my Sugar Mountain Farm blog. In a nutshell, the porkers out weigh everyone else put together by a factor of 17 or more. The pigs also out number the rest of us

Thanks for your interest in my animal roll call. I think mine roll call will be disappointing since I'm not homesteading yet.

2 cats
4 fish
1 snail
3 humans

That's it. We do foster kittens often so the number can be higher at times.

Here at The Coop we have the following:

6 people
1 dog (soon to be 2 when we find the perfect puppy)
28 cats and kittens
1 Appaloosa horse
2 roosters
5 hens (used to be 30)

2 or more fox that have decreased our chicken numbers dramatically while we on vacation.

The Coop is now thinking of ways to outfox the fox!
