    I have been showing, working and breeding Jack Russells for more than 10 years now. These days I am down to four terriers, trying to keep it manageable. I have seen them do just fine with goats if raised right. Chickens are never really "safe" with terriers. In addition, we have three rescued French Bulldogs. A cockatiel, three misfit parakeets that I inherited from working at a vet clinic. 12 Ameracauna chicks...that number will be drastically reduced as soon as we can tell the sex. We only plan on keeping four. And a partridge in a pear tree.

    i had chickens, ducks and rabbits
    but due to the cost of living i have decided not to winter them so they are all gone
    (i feel good about it tho as the fowl went to an elderly man who has recently lost his wife and needed something to keep him occupied and the rabbits went to a 4h home)
    i have 10 mini nubians and 1 grade wether
    i have 5 barn cats and 2 house dogs

    I love JRTs! I grew up with them and have some very fond memories...My mom's JRT gets so excited when she she's a squirrel that, when my mom lets her outside to chase it, she usually runs the wrong way! She also FREAKS OUT whenever she hears a lawn mower because, one time when my step dad started the mower, a mouse ran out from underneath it and she caught it. Now she thinks that running lawn mower=mouse. Never a dull moment--I'll tell you that!

    wow i think im the odd ball here. I have had goats for 13 something years. but about a month ago my car started giving me more problems then it was worth, i also wanted to attend college and just couldnt do it with all that money i was forking out for the goats, so i leased the herd out to a wonderful home in idaho. i still have goat acess with the goat dairy farm i work at and i can go see my girls and boys anytime i wanted.
    I have gotten rid of the chickens and guinea pigs as well.
    At one point i had
    five guinea pigs
    six chickens
    fourteen goats
    one cat
    one dog
    one cockatiel
    and two budgies
    one horse
    and one pony
    I sold sam, my horse just because i didnt have the tie for him, cubby my pony was old and has sinse passed away. same with my cockatiel and budgies. My last gpig died last year, she lived to be eight.
    now we just have two cats. Sometimes its a little too quiet around here. but im still as goat craxy as ever

    Since everyone else is listing their animals...

    About 200 chickens - give or take a couple, too many breeds and mixes to even consider listing
    22 turkeys (easterm wild, royal palm, white, and red bourbon)
    11 geese, - 1 gray emden, 4 white emden, and 6 white chinese
    about 18 ducks - muscovies, welsh harlequins, pekin, rouns, silver appleyards and khaki cambells
    8 guineas - lavender and gray
    about 18-20 roller pigeons
    10 cats
    1 dog (lab/chow chow mix)
    6 goats
    1 donkey
    19 rabbits
    And we're looking to get peafowl again, our other ones died of old age.

    But we've had alot of other animals before including horses, cattle, sheep, parakeets, a pet rat named missy.. lol.
