I am very new. I am thinking about keeping chickens. I live in Fairbanks, AK.
Welcome to the forum! Glad you are here!
You might find these articles informative. The lady that wrote them lives in Ontario so she has a better handle on your climate than I do.

Wow, Alaska. You will have situations with chickens that I can't imagine. Unlike our climate where the hens only go inside to roost at night. Keep us updated on your progress and best of luck!

for Alaska, I would stick to the very cold hardy birds
and yes, you have many many other Alaskans on here!
wish you the best of luck!
I'm in Fairbanks too, I'm here if you need advice! I'm familiar with start up costs and feed/supply locations.
I also live in Fairbanks. Just got my first chicks this spring (late March). I've asked a lot of questions of people in town who also keep chickens. Got some good advice. I'd be happy to help you out in any way I can. Just zip me an e-mail.
What kind of insulation do you use? And fencing for bears and a BIG Malamute?
