    I have chickens in suburban community, but the only thing I really worry about is if my neighbors catch on to what I'm doing, what if their not as meticulous as I am at upkeep? I do a total coop clean once a week and make sure that nest boxes are cleaned daily. I get nervous with all of the GREAT press chickens have been getting, if my neighbors take it on as well. While its not a bad thing, what if they are horrid upkeepers? Does that cross any other city dwellers mind?

    You clean once a week? Do you use shavings or straw? I wouldnt worry about it. Just enjoy your chickens.

    I use pine shavings and have been replacing it once a week. For winter/cold weather I'm going to the deep litter method and using a light layer of DE each time I add a layer of shavings. I'm not sure if why you're worried about your neighbors. Are you allowed to have chickens where you live?
