Three Books on Chicken (Alaska)

Note: If you found this during a search for chicken recipes, this entry will disappoint. It’s a flaw in full text searching.

This week our “Three Books on …” series takes us to Chicken. Here is a description of Chicken’s location and climate from Alaska Community Database:

Chicken is located at mile 66 of the Taylor Highway, approximately 100 road miles southwest of Eagle. It lies on the right bank of Chicken Creek, one mile north of Mosquito Fork, in the Fortymile River Basin. The community lies at approximately 64.073330° North Latitude and -141.936110° West Longitude. (Sec. 31, T001S, R033E, Fairbanks Meridian.) Chicken is located in the Fairbanks Recording District. Interior Alaska experiences seasonal temperature extremes. January temperatures average -22 to -2 °F, but temperatures as low as -70 °F have been recorded. July temperatures range from 50 to 80 °F. Average annual precipitation is 11.3 inches.

You can learn more about Chicken by reading their full profile from the Alaska Community Database.
