Im just wanting to know what kind of farm animals you would have in a survival situation as food..... I will be keeping, Chickens, Goats, and Rabbits.
lol.I would keep cats and dogs. Dogs for security and cats so the dogs have something to eat.
It all depends on the situation and how bad it is. If people are doing crazy things and a total lack of regard for person and property have taken place, you want to leave a small footprint!Someone mentioned they wouldn't want animals that make noise. That noise could save your life.
That's what I was getting at. Dogs also arent the first thing people are looking to eat. But personally, If my family is starving and I hear a rooster, I may come checking it out. Or, if you have a BOL that is well hidden from the road and no where near a major road, I wouldnt want a cow letting everyone within 5 miles know I am there and I have beef.It all depends on the situation and how bad it is.

watched my duck eat a wasp then they were eating the flys that swarm the poop of where the chicken tractor was yesterday. Looked like they were catching them too.ducks: meat, eggs, feathers for down insulation and more, insect and pest control for problems in the garden, ducks will eat anything that doesn't eat them first... they have almost no health problems compared to chickens and are active foragers which are practically self sustaining in areas which have ample rain (and if they have access to a body of water).
