I have a question. I dont have chicks/chickens but i want them really bad. I asked my parents many times, but there answer is still no. I asked them why the reason was, and BOTH my mom and dad said because we have dogs. We have a 9 year old Lab. And a 3/4 year old westie. MY lab is blind. Another reason is cause the neighbors/ city limits. Our next door nieghbors have 2 RIR and 2 new BO. and one time our neighboors complained about noise. THe real question is What kind of chickens are quiet/pretty/good layers/ you will find at a feed store? AND how do dogs relate to MOSTLY chicks and chickens? questions?
