Hey all you chicks and chooks, egg collectors and feather fluffers! I missed you all. I am back after 8 years and wow has it been a ride. We moved from Idaho to Florida, from a farm to an apartment. Kids grew up, I got a degree, and we bought a home with two acres yesterday in rural Florida and all I can think about is getting chickens again! Quail too, of course! I don't know how much this website has changed, but as the years flew by I knew the resources and the people here were still around. Glad to be back. I will be back and forth a lot mostly for advice on predator proofing for Florida. The sweet old lady we bought our place from informed me about how she took care of the local raccoons and fox by feeding them kitchen scraps, so I already am stressing and I haven't even moved into the house yet.
