Near ND
As you are on the North side of North Dakota, we sit and the way southern side. Although we live in ND our mailing address is SD.. so we live on the border.

Right now, I just have red and black sex link hens. I had some cornish crosses, but they have met their maker. I had five lost three (2 don't know, the last didn't get butchered soon enough) so have 2 in the freezer. Don't think I will get anymore of them, just when they needed butchered other things kept coming up, we don't eat a lot of chicken. Am thinking of getting some duel purpose next year, to add to the variety of the flock. I have 14 hens, that were purchased early March and they are all laying now. Working on getting some customers to sell some of my eggs.

We have mainly beef cattle, a interesting mix right now as we bought bred cows in Nov. The ones we were told were bred black have thrown some interesting calves. The only true ones we had were our herefords. Next year we know that our cows were bred to a hereford so.. should have herefords and black/white faces.

I am thinking along the lines of getting some guiennia hens next year and really would like either goats or a few sheep, but haven't decided which one to choose. Also have to figure out their living quarters. (where to put them and how to get water to them)

The animals are My thing.. I do have three horses. They make wonderful yard ornaments. (only one is broke and she is an older mare and doesn't like leaving the other two behind) Now that I am working again, need to find some one to start training them for me.(never seem to have time nor experience to do work with them on a regular basis)
Have a great day!
