    Not sure what advice you need. My one suggestion would be, don't use hay as it stinks after a day or so. (I only have 8 chickens but do live in Fl) My coop now has sand and I like it! The kitty litter scoop works great and no smell yet(it's been 3 weeks)
    My other advice would be to bath a chicken when you need a pick me up. It's so fun to watch how much they enjoy it. Sounds stupid but it's the little things that amuse me

    [​IMG] The best advice I can give for new chicks is plenty of clean water, clean pine shavings as bedding, feeding medicated chick starter, and warmth. Not too warm though!
