Hey everyone. I'm Steve. I am in the process of trying to get a variance in my town, Holden ma. I want to do 6-8 hens no roosters but I just found out that the neighbor living close by has started a petition against the chickens I don't even have yet. My friendly neighbor had told me that the petition states that the chickens will smell really bad. I know this is all last minute and everything being that the variance meeting is Thursday night, does anyone have suggestions as what to do at this point. I have already looked for ways to naturally keep the smell down and it isn't that bad, but I really want to raise chickens. Can anyone else help me out here?
