We are flood survivors from Louisiana now living in Northeast Florida. We have a mixed breed dog that we adopted 7 years ago that watches over our chickens. I am basically retired and love the outdoors. I love building things, researching, and am very interested in hydro/aquaponics. I enjoy sitting outside by a fire with a cold beer or a cup of coffee and watching the girls scratch and peck. They free range in a large fenced backyard and share it with our dog, Sage. She watches over them and keeps them in line. She even sleeps with them in the shed that I converted into a coop so I don't need to worry about predators!
