You should allow chicken. In Chinese they don't specify that it is a male chicken. In fact, they often say it is a sign of wealth because chickens lay many eggs - so clearly it is actually a hen.

I "avoided" the rabbit and ox. I'm a monkey myself, but I don't really know what the Monkey's "avoid".

If I remember right, each year should avoid the animal that is both three before and three after their own year, thus forming 4 triads that should avoid each other: Rat, Dragon, Monkey; Ox, Snake, Rooster; Tiger, Horse, Dog; and Rabbit, Goat, Pig.

The way I've read it, every four years are supposed to be best friends. For instance, rabbits, sheep and pigs.

@Nutter, I am shame to famiry. You're right, the triads were friends, and you're supposed to avoid the year 6 years away, or opposite the wheel.

Never heard of this avoiid stuff. Will have to look into it.

All the gemini's I ve known caused soo much friction. Then I read geminis are the worst ones for pisces to be around > I was so surprised! Cause I dont really believe that stuff. but it was so coincidental. (just the fact that every gemini I ve known sort of had the same ( twofaced) behaviour) )>

intersting subject regardless :)

If "sheep" is an acceptable answer for "ram", could you also add "lamb"?

The linked Wikipedia page in the instructions lists goat instead of ram. Not sure if it was recently changed on the Wiki page or what. Just pointing that out. I got that one right, so I'm not complaining (and maybe you already accept goat as an answer for that one, I don't know). :D

Goats and sheep share the same character in Chinese, regardless of gender, so all answers should be ok.
