I have been crazily into keeping animals (often as pets, but not always) since I was a child. Having started out with usual pets, like hamsters, freshwater fish and guinea pigs, I soon progressed to lizards, amphibians and turtles, together with breeding various variety of aviary birds, including cockatiels, Indian Ringneck parakeets and budgies.
When I entered my teenage years I progressed to livestock - specifically chickens, and as an adult I have run a smallholding for over 8 years, keeping pigs, goats, poultry, rabbits, ponies and bees.
Animals are wonderful, whether as pets or a way to provide for the family (I have four children, who all seem to eat more than me!) and I doubt I will ever give them up - even the bees, and I'm allergic to them and don't like honey!
