    Hey everybody. My wife and I never set out to have chickens but when our youngest son brought the idea home we mulled it over and said OK. We're new to chickens but not animals. We now have 5 BOs, 5 PRs, and 15 extra surprises from Ideal Poultry. We live in a neighborhood in Jacksonville,FL, so yeah, we have outlaw chickens. But I think that will make the eggs taste better!

    Maybe you can pull it off if you don't keep too many and have no roosters that crow. Roosters crowing might disturb your neighbors. Wishing you the best with your birds. [​IMG]

    No doubt the roos will have to go. The coop and the run we built will support 12 birds max.
