We are a family of four and have been wanting to start our own flock. We have a good friend that has been helping out and turned us to the site. We are hoping that others will join in his kindness and help us out sence we are starting from scratch. We like the look of the star, sussex, and wyandotte breeds. We live in NW FL(pleanty land, high heat, many predators). Right now we arn't looking for show, we want meat and egg birds. Does anyone out there have a better idea of breeds that would better suit us or are these good starters and can they live together in the same coop?
