Chicken newbie here, thinking about getting a few chicks. I want to be as informed as I can beforehand. Located in central FL on the gulf coast. One of my main concerns is the extreme heat and humidity and its effect on chickens. Also how to prevent the attraction of rats! Found this site when doing a Google search on if you can feed hemp leaves to chickens. Looking forward to learning a lot here!

Hi, it's nice to have you here!

The first flock of chickens I was raised was in FL. The heat and humidity are a challenge but doing things like providing a more 'open air' coop for plenty of ventilation, extra waterers, and lots of extra shade (both natural and man-made) can help a lot. You'll get a lot of feedback and tips by checking in over on your state thread:
Florida

Best of luck!
