    I hope you find them and well, good luck with your mom's ideas. Maybe she will go with Chickens.

    So sorry to hear all that! Really hope you find them!
    Meat chickens, and egg-laying chickens are a great way to go. There are a lot of great dual-purpose breeds out there like Leghorns.
    I can only imagine the pain you are feeling. :hug:

    They have already owned goats. So her mom already knows the drill. Sounds more like panic buying. I can't imagine there would be a rush on goats like there was toilet paper.

    I will address comments tomorrow but for now, we think we know where they are. We have been camping in the front yard for 3 days now and today I woke up to hearing a young goat screening but one of our neighbors owns goats so I passed it off as one of her's (She lives 1/2 mile uphill from us so we often hear her goats, and we have a neighbor between us) but tonight we heard it and went to the fence and sure enough it's in the barn just across from us. I will call the sheriff first thing in the morning to see what can be done.

    We have bad blood with that neighbor and I really hope she doesn't have them for her sake! The sheriff said the next bit of trouble he had out of her he would file a harassment charge if we didn't.

    But dear lord please pray they are there so they can come home!

    @mariella we are praying your babies are safe and that you get them back in good health. As for your brother he should pay any legal cost that you may incur now. Oh many prayers going your way.

    (pray) Oh please, oh please, oh please, let them be there. Well on the bright side at least if they are there, they haven't been wandering around with no care all this time.

    Well, the sheriff confirmed that they are over there, we are waiting on the ladies husband to come home so we can pick them up. She said she's had them for 5 out of the 9 days and they were running around in her yard when she found them and decided to put them in the barn because she didn't know who they belonged to, The only people that own goats within a 2-mile radius are us, The neighbor I mentioned before, and a Boer farmer almost 2 miles away so her options were limited as to who they belonged to. But as long as I get my babies back I don't care how long she had them.

    Good hearing they are safe.
    Praying all goes well.
    Have pictures and anything to identify them ready, just in case. :)

    I'm glad you found them! That was nice of your neighbor to keep them cozy in a barn.

    I'm so glad you located them! I hope they're all just fine and I hope you can somehow mend things with your neighbors.
