Hi, we are considering keeping chickens. We have recently moved house to get a garden for kiddies to play in and to grow vegetables and flowers. We'd also love to keep chickens but don't think we could let them range free around the garden - mostly because we don't want the plants wrecked, but also because of the quantity of poop I understand they make. I don't want my son sliding around in chicken poop each time he plays football! We live in the city, so space is precious. It is really hard to get information on whether it is humane to keep chicken in a pen all the time, and what space would be required to make it work. Any advice very welcome!
