I live in Florida, Cape Coral. I have 4 dogs and a small yard, we separated a small area and we screened and enclosed it with chicken wire for a small garden protected from coons ( my garden was devoured by them the year before) well, white powder took it over. I cleared and I am thinking about raising chickens so that we can have fresh eggs. Since I am a beginner, think I can buy 3 little chicks. I cannot have a rooster due to city ordinance. I just learned that chickens can lay eggs without a rooster. i am looking around the site in order to get information and it seems that it is possible for me to raise chickens. All info about how to raise them, feed them, protect them from diseases is well come.
