Hi - I'm new to north San Diego County, CA and to the beautiful town of Fallbrook. I recently moved to a one acre property with a great view of mountains and trees. I'm also a newbie with chickens. I'm planning on building a coop and run for three chickens. Of course I'm also planting gardens and fruit trees and grape/berry vines. The chicken challenges I see here are the heat and the coyotes. The summer days are hot, so a well ventilated coop is obviously a must. The overall property is fenced with chain link, but coyotes are pretty smart (and hungry) so additional secure fencing around the chicken area is also a must. I'm open to any suggestions. I'm glad this website and community were suggested to me by a friend.
