We were awarded a house in florida...Sarasota Co. from a non-profit that works with wounded military men and women and the first thing I looked up was the laws for chickens. Super excited me I can have 4 chickens and hubby agrees with me! My questions are the following and any help would be greatly appreciated since I am new to this. 1) Which chickens lay the best eggs and are a sturdy breed. I want chickens that are hardy and won't have issues outside of possible predators which that will be addressed with their coop and run once built. 2) Which chickens lay brown eggs? 3) In southern Florida it's a mix temp we have some cold nights and warm nights the weather isn't to drastic and want to make sure that I am doing right by the chickens I will be getting in the near future. 4) Is there certain things I need to feed them to make sure they get all the nutrients that they need to stay healthy and strong and lay good eggs? 5) Is there any foods that I need to make to sure to stay clear of for my future feather babies? Any information and help would be greatly appreciated...I'm super excited!
