    What breed chicken do you prefer? I've been considering Chanticleers when I finally establish a flock.

    I managed to get the green spruce dug out of the ice/snow and stacked up. It will become next year's firewood. I love the smell of fresh spruce. Lots of heavy lifting. Tomorrow, I am going to get another load of hay. I think I'll leave it on the truck and tarp it.
    One of my older goats is doing poorly. It is the time of year when older animals will die. The other time of year they'll pass is in the Spring, after they have made it through Winter. All the other critters are doing well. It's been warmer than usual but that means their houses and pens are still wet. I am surprised how well free range fowl (chickens and turkeys) do up here in the winter. They like to scratch, though. That means that any space under cover and free of snow becomes a dust bath for them.

    I like Orpingtons cause they fit well with my plan...…..decent layers, often double yolks (though this group hasn't yet), docile temperament (except when brooding), notorious for brooding and good mama's, and good size for the table. Also, once they're about 6 or 8 months old, they're too fat in the butt to get over the fence to the neighbors yard :badgrin:
    Before that, I only have to clip their wings once, maybe twice.
    Except my current rooster is a Red/Blue Laced Wyandotte. This Mama is one of his daughters.

    Chanticleers would probably be a great flock for you in Alaska being so cold hardy.

    I have only seen the first Harry Potter movie, but am intrigued by that particular genre. Don't remember that hallway in it. Later movie? And no, I don't know where that is.

    That too, though I rarely am not conscious so much of what music is in the background with some exceptions.

    The opening scene of "My Cousin Vinny", the theme songs to "Out of Africa", "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly", "Star Wars", "Titanic", "Beverly Hills Cop", to name just a few, are indelibly identified with the films.

    Speaking of "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" and in honor of our new British Coffee Shopper, I would like to offer one of my favorite British groups, the Ukelele Orchestra, performing that particular theme song:



    They are brilliantly funny, but this is actually brilliantly done and very good music to boot.
