So I am looking into getting a backyard chicken coop to teach my kids about where our food comes from as well as give them so more responsibilities. My question is this, we have a 1/2 acre of land but what the house and deck aren't sitting on is all forested. I have a small flat area up in the trees but even that is shaded the majority of the day. Would this type of place be acceptable? How will it effect egg production? I don't want to get started only to find that my situation isn't ideal for the chickens. Thanks in advance for comments.
