Hello, my name is Deena, I am addicted to chickens! We started with 2 hens. Thought we would get 4 total. Went to get some chicks and ended up with 6 week pullets (2 of them) and then some less than a week old chicks (5 of them). Our plan was to keep 2 if the 5. So in the city you can have 6 chickens. Here is the thing. We are renting my mom's house. They are living in a guest house on the property. SOOOOOO since their are two households here, could we have 6 each? Hmmmmmmmm Just thinking......... My mom is no help, she is an enabler and just as addicted as me. We built our coop together and yesterday she came up and gave some ideas about enclosing the bottom part of the coop to give us more square foot for more chickens, and how we can make the run larger.. Sigh.
