I've been planning my chicken run and garden for months, and I've finally finished my design. I live in the desert, so I'm going to use a grey-water irrigation system for the garden. I'm fencing it in sections, and I plan to rotate the sections and have one to sit fallow each year. The chickens will have a permanent coop and run with access to the fallow garden section. Obviously, all of this required a lot of planning and consideration, and there's just one perfect way to fit it all in my yard. BUT... I started scratching out my plan in the dirt, and my neighbor (who is also my MOTHER) had a fit! Oh, no, she says. You're going to put that coop as far away from me as possible. She's convinced that she's going to be choked out by chicken-stink. From what I've read here, I don't expect it to be a problem- I will have a few chickens with plenty of room and we live in an arid climate. What can I tell her?
