    Hard to believe that owning chickens that provide food could be a big deal fom some. I not saying you need 100 in your subdivision backyard but a small flock to me just seems reasonable. Of course I grew up in the country and it was just normal. I live on the edge of town now and my place private and not in a subdivision or anything. One does back up to me however. I told my neighbors if my roosters got to bothering them just let me know and I'd get rid of them. I didn't figure they would mind since they have yappy digs and this way it put the issue to bed right away. In fact they want eggs now. However, I just discovered that my county ordinances dont allow livestock including chickins in less than 2 acres which I don't quite have. Anything over a fraction of two acres and you can have 8 cows or 8 horses etc which is just plain stupid. Trying now to find out if this applys to all the county or only inside city limits. Bartow county Ga.
