City Chickens

I live in a typcial suburb: 30-40 year old subdivision with split-entry and bungalo houses, bus routes, lots of kids… you know, just like the Rush song.

I’m thinking about getting chickens. There’s a wide utility path behind my house where power-line towers are, so I have no neighbors behind me. The chicken coup would be located near the middle-rear of the backyard, so the neighbors on the left and right shouldn’t be disturbed by them.

I have no idea how to raise chickens, but I like the idea of raising our own eggs.

I haven’t contacted the powers-that-be yet to see if there are any laws about it.

I’ll post updates.

First Phillip starts bee-keeping, and now me chickens. We should buy a farm together.
