i have 4 chickens who are almost a year old and things are going great! i have a 6ft privacy fence and i've had no problems with neighbors etc. i have some new chicks...waiting to see which ones are roos as they age......and i have more chicks coming in march from Meyer (i'm giving most of them to a friend).....i'm thinking of increasing my flock from 4 to 12 or 14......my question is for other illegal chicken owners. How many chickens do you have and how is it going? Do you think 12 or 14 would be too much for an illegal?
