    We raise American Blackbelly and Cracker Sheep on our 20 acre farm in NW Florida.
    We do have three Eastern Wild Turkeys but no chickens yet. We hope to be able to run free range chickens behind our sheep as we rotate them on the 8 pastures. Thanks for the opportunity to join!

    Our farm....

    I built this for my daughter, 23 years ago, and as the kids grew up, some of the lattice was damaged and they put chicken wire on it and used it to house chickens, guineas, and quail. That's the closest we've gotten to an actual chicken coop. It's not really in the "farm zone" of our property so I think I will renovate it to it's original intent as a playhouse, for the grandkids instead of it's present modification with chickenwire around the bottom.
