I have 5 2 of them are losing feathers the other seem fine but the last week I've only gotten 2 to 3 eggs and their not drinking much water what do I do?

Are they broody? Are they sitting in the nesting box and pulling out their own feathers? If not, I would check for mites.

I love your site! I am wanting to get a couple of Nigerian Dwarf goats to have on our farm for our grandchildren. I would like to know what you think I should get and a possible breeder near me. I have already ordered the book you mention on your site. We live in southern Illinois. I would also like to know what type of fencing and housing you suggest for them as well. We want to do this right and it sounds like you are the perfect person to ask!

Here are some places to check for goats for sale near you:

The most reliable fencing is chain link. That can be pricey, cattle panels can also work as long as the goats can't slip between the spaces. A simple shed is probably adequate for housing. I don't believe it gets very cold in your area?

Two of my 3 chickens were killed leaving one 3 year old all alone. Does she need a companion? If so, do I need to be careful introducing them?

Yes, she will be much happier with at least one other chicken. They should get along fine once they establish their pecking order.
