So I have been seriously thinking about chickens just 2 or 3 in a small 4x4x4 coop with open chicken wire sides and a single nesting box and a nice roost to sleep on. Then I would like a open 5 ft by 10ft daily run with limited access to the garden to forage for bugs off the plants.
There of course would be no rooster just 3 egg layers as a constant egg supply and for wonderful pets.
Very excited about this possibility and will keep you updated.
Tampa does not currently allow chickens inside their city limits. : ( working on a way around this setback...
