Hello folks, So we’re exploring the idea of a small flock/coop for our beach home just South of Cocoa Beach, Florida. Local codes only allow us to have 4 hens only so applying the rule of 2s I’d like to build a habitat that could comfortably care for 8 hens. We are brand new to the chicken experience so we have no hens yet. We are researching the best egg-layers for our climate. Stumbled across this forum via a simple Google search and are happy we did. Been lurking and reading for a while but getting ready to dive in soon. We're an active, homeschoolin', soccer-playin', surfin', Star Wars family that loves loving others and worshiping God. We appreciate what you've built here.
