I live in Northwest Florida. While searching for chickens in my area I stumbled across this forum. I have interests in many things and for now I want to investigate chickens. I have 8 acres next to a creekbed. I am looking first for chickens that can free range and can stand our humid and hot weather. I would like to get just one and see how my white English bulldogs deal with it first. Their job will be to protect the chickens from predators likes foxes, bobcats, coyotes, and many other predators. I am also looking for local suppliers of chickens. I am also interested in geese and other animals.
