Hello! I have been wanting to raise chickens for eggs for a couple years and now is the perfect time to do it! However, as I said I am starting from zero. I have lots of questions... I live in WA state and my house is in the woods. There are dear, raccoons, possums, and even coyote from time to time. There are also Hawks, owls, and Eagles. The front yard is mostly driveway, lots of trees and some grass (mostly moss where grass used to be). The backyard is planter boxes with a little gravel path around the boxes, with shrubs and bushes around the perimeter. On one side, behind the bushes and shrub, the land drops off. Temp wise, the summer is pretty nice and it Rarely getts above 80 degrees. Fall is also nice and remains mild temperature wise, seldom getting below 50. Winter is rainy and chilly. Night time temps are around 20-40. Daytime temps are pretty similar, but will sometimes be in the 50s. Spring is the rainiest season with temps between 30-60. That all being said, it is neither solely hot or cold climate. My questions are this: where would be a best place to keep the coop in this terrain? Also, should the area where the chickens end up being kept be totally fenced, even on top? Lastly, is it best to start off with chicks so they grow and become accustomed to me or is it easier to begin with adult chickens? Thank you! I am so excited about this journey!
