JosieAK i'm sure tammy can fill you in better but it's something like you have to have at least 4000 square feet and no more then 5 chickens. No rosters, geese, peacocks, etc and i would be more worried about bears wanting garbage left on the street then chickens.

I dont have any details yet. The Anchorage Assembly just voted (10 to 2) in favor of the Legalization of Chickens and Rabbits in the town of Anchorage.

There are some links for you to check out.

I live in the very edge of a Bear Aware Area so we will have to be very vigilant about how we house our chickens, if we get chickens.

Does anyone know of any actively meeting mama groups in the Valley?  I haven't ever met with LLL before, but I think I'd really like to.  I don't know how I'd do as a midwife or doula, but I sure would be interested in being a LC someday if the right training and opportunities presented themselves.  Anyway, that's just a dream.  I'm mostly just wondering about how to get together.

I'm in Palmer as well...we just bought a house in January...I'm due mid-May with my 4th...moving while pregnant is a theme in my life.  As to a mom's group I think there is a Mom's Club/group in Palmer, but am not 100% positive.

Congrats on the house!  I am in Wasilla & would also like to meet some more non-mainstream families. Count me in if you find an active group please!
 



 

I don't know of any non-mainstream meetings happening in the Valley, but I know someone over on thebabywearer.com wanted to start a babywearing group out here.

Anyone know about the coops available for homeschoolers here? 



Yes, MTA vs GCI sucks big time!  And in the state of AK netflix streaming is not cheap since we don't have unlimited download/upload...though I heard mention that the lower 48 is slowly starting to do away with unlimited download/upload due to not making any money because of netflix. 

 

I don't know of any homeschool coops either, though there has to be some with both IDEA and Mat Su Central out here.  We homeschool and use MSCS but haven't ever joined a group or coop of any kind.



 

I know I'm here so infrequently...I come to Mothering and my due date club all the time and often forget about the AK chatsredface.gif  Can I blame it on preggo brain?lol.gif  I'm 37 weeks and so ready to be done...(well technically I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow and officially cleared for my homebirth).  I'm so looking forward to being done with this pregnancy...keeping up with 3 other kids and the house and dh is getting impossible.

Speaking of GCI and their internet, we asked them today about downgrading since we rarely use our cable and our home phone. Thought maybe we could just do the Internet...........


LOL

 

Well turns out we are still on the Old Unlimited Plan for internet service and last month we used over 125,000mb which is more then the biggest package they have available!

We cannot afford to switch plans thanks to NetFlix. The customer service lady said don't do anything. In fact, don't mention this again to anyone at GCI!    whistling.giflol

does anyone know a source for buying hens old enough to nearly old enough to lay eggs?

 

Or any source for chicks for that matter.  :)

Thanks.

I know quite a few people have had to use online sources this year as Triple D Farms went out of business.  I could find the names of the farms if you'd like.
