My love for farm animals is too strong. We already live on close to 3 acres but I want to be able to raise my chickens legally. Thinking about the prospect makes me itch. So does anyone have any good excusses? I'd feel like such a spoiled brat if they fell for it. Will someone give me advice as to the pros of living on a farm so i can "convince" my parents to move to one? I know they could afford it.
