    I was just wondering how you all would feel about this one.


    You open your gift and the card inside says that a goat and a cow were given to a village in africa in your name.

    I'd be disappointed. I could use a goat and a cow for my homestead.

    i would be pleased...instead of getting stuff you dont need...you are helping out a family....

    with a goat or a cow they can set up a business.....milk, cheese, young kids or calves to sell...

    its a good thing

    Not with one goat and one chicken. You'll get eggs from most breeds of chicken (if you have a hen) at about 20 weeks, depending on breed. You can have eggs but if you have no rooster, you have no new chickens. If you only have a rooster, he'll be tasty starting at about 8-10 weeks.
    Goat won't produce milk until she's had her first kid most have to "freshen" every year in order to keep producing milk. Again, you need a buck for that. So, minimum two goats needed to feed the family or set up a business. I understand that the outfits that sell these packages also provide training about animal nutrition and care and that would help.

    I made goat cheese stuffed red peppers yesterday for the family.

    Love goat cheese!

    What a great gift for someone to give to someone else in your name! I also love Skulls Elephant Fostering Program site, I'm going to check that out too.

    Most of us can BUY what we need, how cool that someone thought of others that CAN'T buy things.
