We'll be moving to the NE Florida pinewoods after hubby gets out of the army. I am not from that area, and hubby was raised in Jacksonville metro, so neither of us are overly familiar with what predators we will be dealing with when we move out into the rural area. I've been reading threads to try to make up a list of what we'll be dealing with so I can plan my Fortress Chicken to defend. Here is what I have so far: raccoons coyotes bobcats (!!) loose/stray dogs loose/stray cats snakes (which kinds? I've heard eastern rattlers?) I'm obviously missing predatory birds here. Are skunks and possums in the area? We're looking in Bradford, Clay, and Putnam counties, and I would love to have property very near a state forest (yeah, that will complicate things). My goal is not feed a single predator - they will be MY breakfast eggs and MY dinner! I am so ready to get out of this city, but have to cool my heels for another year so I have plenty of time to research and plan.
