    Do you prefer to live and raise chickens and other pets in the city or the country?

    Country.

    I don't prefer anything in the city, nothing, not ever, nope, no way. Been there, done that, never going back.

    I'm stuck in the city and at their whim when it comes to anything to do with my home. I would much prefer to live in the country.

    I would prefer to live in the country but I've made the best of living in the city. I think they both have their pros and cons.

    Country, definately......city has their pros and cons when it comes to grocery stores, anything locally and most things are within walking distance and cheaper bills.

    One day, just one day, we shall live out in the country if only the property acreages would go down but doubtful in our area.

    Stuck in the city :( I'd give my eye teeth to be able to find a nice place in the country, though!

    I would much rather raise chickens in the country but for life overall, the city is better for me at the moment.

    Country by far. Never lived in a city, never want to. Large amounts of people like that make me scared and uncomfortable.

    Ewesheep--just curious. What's land going for in your area? Ours in NW PA is insane...1 acre for $18,200!!! a 98 acre farm with ZERO buildings for $220,00!!

    I would much rather live in the country, but I live in town. I make the best of it with my hens (no roo) in the backyard and a small garden in beds in the front yard.

    Country. That way no one can complain about roosters. I love my roosters. Lucky for me, where I am at, I am just outside of the city. Close enough to be city, close enough to be country. But the city is encroaching...
