I am considering starting a small urban flock. Everyone that I have talked to about this that has had chickens before immediately gets the same look on their face and the first words out of their mouths are "Don't do it, chickens stink!" Do they? This is not going to work out if there a strong odor involved. My husband is not a fan of this idea and my neighbors will complain and that will be the end of that. Where I live, you are allowed 4 hens. No roosters. Everyone just keeps telling me how "stinky" chickens are. I've got no experience with them other than taking a quick stroll through the poultry barn at the fair and it's been a few years since I have done that. Give it to me straight, chicken lovers, please!
