    If he lives in Surprise the neighbors might complain but he is supposed to keep them 80 ft from the house.... not in his kitchen, that's gross!

    My ex has 8 chickens living in his kitchen I really dont want my kids over their, chickens are dirty smelly and the neighbors will probably complain if he puts them outside
