Hello, I have not yet got my chickens yet...I plan on having 2. and raising them from chicks. i have one issue. I'm gonna be living in an apartment. there is nothing saying that i cannot have chickens. The city I'm in allows it. so, i really don't care if the apartment allows it because i plan on not letting them know that i have them. I plan on keeping them on the balcony and making it so no one can see them. I am going to be on the top floor so it will be easy. i plan on having bantam orpingtons because i hear that they are not as loud as others. my biggest problem is noise!! any ideas on how to keep them quiet or reduce noise. i can make a ventilation system to bring air in and out if i need to. but i need it to be quiet. and to keep the smell down as much as possible! thanks for the help!!
