Hi Everyone- I've been stalking this site for a while and finally joined- My Family and I are moving to a small "homestead" Next month in Plant City Florida- we have a run in shed in one of the pastures near the house that I am planning on turning half of it into a coop. so it will end up being around 14x6ft- I am reading up as much as possible about chickens because this will be my very first experience with them. I hope my kids will want to do 4H with them as well. I am hoping to get friendly breeds that are good layers- orpingtons have been recommended- any other breed suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. Any common rookie mistakes to look out for as well- I'm sure once we start building the coop and getting the chickens I will be on here much more often!
