HOT Summers, mild winters. No snow ever. Coldest nighttime temps maybe high 30's -- but that is rare. Most winter nights in the 40's. Summer begins in April, lasts until November. Highs to 100 sometimes above. Coops and Runs have shade, Will be planting vines and things to give more shade. Can provide blocks of ice, and timed spray nozzles to cool off in afternoons. I really want friendly, calm, large brown or colored egg layers. And just 4 hens. They will be family pets/that give back to their family. No very young children at home. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Coop and run almost ready; will be planting inside of coops with some plants that they won't like too much to add shade and fun, and planting seeds and small plants that they can munch on. Will be planting flats of grass and clover to rotate into the runs. Also will work on Chunnels around the surrounding vegetable gardens.
