    The article I wrote is in Chickens Magazine Jan/Feb edition. I am so excited because it is my first published article. It came out pretty nice. I was so happy to find it in Barnes & Noble after looking for it at 3 other stores in Fairbanks, Even my favorite feed store didn't have it.

    I've always wanted to visit Alaska - it looks cold in your picture! Voted.

    I just enjoyed reading the article, "A Rooster's Fate." I have over 100 chickens and have over 33 roosters. I actually had to stop and count my mated birds. I have some roosters that coexist with each other nicely. I have several rogue roosters, that run around like a bunch of butt heads, but most of the roosters do very well with as many as I have. I love their morning serenades and I'm so thankful that I live in the country enough to where I don't have to kill them at birth, besides I might get a hen by mistake. Mine get to live the Rooster's life and I'm happy about that.

    We are building a new coop, more like a barn 20 x 28 to house our flock. I just had 5 beautiful little chicks come over the last few days. Thanks for your kind words. This year's garden wasn't as productive as I had hoped. I got lots of good potatoes some squash, but the geese and the ducks took care of most of the rest.
