We can have as many hens as we want but we aren’t supposed to have roosters I am thinking about trying that no crow collar to see if that will quiet a rooster enough that I could keep one because I’ve always wanted to make my own breed of chicken and this could be where it all startsWelcome back to the world of chickens, Matieus27. Good luck with your coop construction!
Does your community limit the number of chickens you can have? I have gotten some of my birds from a 4-H'er who lives in a town that limits her to 3.
However, chicken math is what it is, and she and her mom sometimes have up to 30 birds in their fenced-in backyard and giant shed-coop. That includes chickens, ducks and a guinea. They get by, her mom said, because they have nice neighbors -- and give away a lot of eggs!
