    Hi everyone,
    I've been steered to the forum, by my good friend Bird_Slave.
    I'm happy to be here, looks like a great group.
    I've had chickens for about 10 years now, on the outskirts of Seattle. Usually a small suburban flock of 3-5 hens. Right now I have 1 Buff Orpington, 1 Sicilian Buttercup and 2 Easter Eggers. The rainy season has started and going to spend a little time here, getting to know you all.
    I'm originally from Alaska, but have lived here for 30+years. My user name is the Tlingit word for chicken, or as close as it gets. It's closer to Spruce Grouse. (Well, of course it is. lol)
    I hope you are all having great days,
    Kaax

    Oh no, not my partner in crime! These nice people are under the impression that I'm a good egg! :D
    Welcome my dear friend. As the other forum members will find, you have alot to offer in chicken knowledge and a wonderful personality to match. :)

    Had to google kalhitna, I think I was from way south of there, the panhandle. I did spend one winter in Anchorage. One winter was enough. lol

    Yeah the pan handle is a bit more temperate. I am in eagle river just north of anchorage. The winters keep getting longer and longer the more time I live here. Dipped below zero last night, brrrrr. Kids are grown, hubby and I are thinking of finding a warmer place to live.

    I am not older than dirt. We are the same age. I just look a bit older since that horrible botox incident. :p

    Hi kaax and welcome! In NW Alabama, it was a breezy 65 today with plenty of sunshine, and tomorrow it is supposed to be in the low 70's here. Lots of sun, too. Rainy season, huh? That drips!! :p Glad to have you around here!

    It'll probably warm up there, the same time it stops raining here.

    So depressing but true! The chickens don't seem to mind so much. I think it bothers me more than them.
