Some Day A Chicken Will Be Able To Cross The Road And Not Be Asked Why. Just one of the many poultry sayings I've encountereed lately, as my winter "project" this year involves a flock of chickens. Yes, Chickens. Urban Chickens to be exact. Lo and behold, where I live has no regulations in regards to chickens. Except one ... don't be a nuisance. In chickenese that means no loud noises (cock a doodle doos), no nasty smell, and pretty much don't annoy the neighbors.
Our property is pretty much perfect for this project. Very private, wooded, neighbors are not too close, even though we smack dab in the middle of the city.
The coop doesn't even look like a real coop. More like a kids playhouse. And supposedly the chicks are all females, but only time will tell when it comes to that little caveat. Eggs in the Spring means hens and cockadoodle at 4:30am means roosters. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Urban chickens are sweeping the country. Do YOUR neighbors have any?
