    I live in North Dakota... yep... people do live here! lol I have started a website for our ranch and for those of you that read my short story experience "the chicken is playing dead... and yes I screamed like a girl" here on Backyard Chickens, I have also started a blog. I have never done anything like this but thought enough funny things happen around here I might as well put them down... lol feel free to look around my site and the blog is called The Funny Farm and is under the tab "on the farm"
    the website is www.minihafenranch.com

    I truly hope you enjoy it!!

    Hi, from ND too, on the border about an hour from Fargo. We have Silkies and Reds. We're starting off, it's our first winter and there is so much to get ready before it gets too cold. Not to mention we have guineas hatching as we speak... haha

    Not too much action here on this ND thread, but maybe the few of us can get it going!

    Samahoga, do you have guinees now or just hatching the eggs? I was thinking of getting a few to live with our chicks next summer. I had a friend offer me some of her day olds, but I didn't want to deal with new babies with the busy-ness happening round here lately!

    No snow yet in York. I suppose that is because we are prepared for the storm. Any one in ND experiencing snow yet?

    New to BYC and found this thread. There is, suprisingling, yet another person here in good ol' ND! I see most on this forum are from the east and north sides of the state, I currently live by the little town of Gladstone.(Close to Dickinson) While I don't have any poultry atm, I do have an order of 30 chickens and 2 geese in progress! I'm so excited I can hardly take it, March 11th couldnt come sooner! (April for geese). My list is as follows:
    (2) New Hampshire
    (1) Buff Laced Polish
    (3) Light Brahma
    (3) Buff Brahma
    (4) Salmon Faverolle
    (2) Buff Orpingtons
    (1) White Crested Black Polish
    (3) Silver Polish
    (2) Black Australorp
    (3) Speckled Sussex
    (3) Red Sex Link
    (1) Dark Brahma
    (2) Easter Eggers
    I just couldnt help myself, just had to get a couple of everything on my first order in about 8 yrs. I raised chickens while growing up and now I finally have a place of my own, aka, get to make my own chicken list!!! I'm thinking of just narrowing it down to Buff/Light Brahma, Salmon Faverolle, and Silver Polish in the future. I would like to try my best to raise some fine specimens in those species once I get some good starter stock, hopefully from some of the excellent people on this site) to help improve/protect these breeds. Who knows mabey one day we N. Dakotans will get lucky enough to have a poultry show. \(o_O)

    In answer to the post above me, yes, we finally got snow. Not the usual monstrocity winter we get, but it will hopefully now be a white christmas.

    I got 25 Rhode Island Red girls and 25 Light Brahma boys this year on April 27. Hens are laying an average of 20 eggs a day and the most I got was 22 for five days straight. Still have a few that are just starting, eggs are tiny. I kind of missed the mark for North Dakota, was hoping to have the boys butchered before the snow flew but they weren't ready to butcher, really slow. Hoping they can be butchered before chicks arrive in the spring. They all look beautiful, though I don't think I will get the Rhode Island Reds again, they get bored easy and pick on each other when it gets cold.
