Speaking of allergies, my brother doesn't have any and he spends all of his time in the basement. I am in shock of that. Anyway, my brother isn't in favor of me getting chickens even though he would never see them, only eat their eggs. Such a nerd, he thinks they will taste worse or something. All of you are complaining, and I completely agree with all of you, but imagine having to live with someone like that. My mom thinks the chickens will smell bad, but she is all for the fresh, healthier eggs.
