I live in Northern North Dakota on 180 acres with two quarter horses and a german wire haired pointer for now. In the spring I plan on getting a BUNCH of chickens. Eventually I want a dairy cow, pigs (yum), sheep (yum), turkeys, ducks, geese and maybe some goats. I am getting married in August and am going to attempt to grow all of the food for the wedding. AHHHHH! I know I'm crazy, but plan on raising 75 broilers for this event and have never had my own chickens before! I also want to try and create my own mutt breed chickens from easter eggers, chanteclers, russian orloffs, and salmon faverolles. My goal is to come out with some interesting looking, cold hardy, dual purpose farm birds. If you have any wisdom for me please don't hesitate to share!
