We get along REALLY well with our neighbors. They are all related to one another and they are our only neighbors since we live in a woodsy area. We told the son and daughter in law about our chicks and their first reaction was "Carol (the mom) is going to flip out! She hates chickens!" Our yards are far apart and our ladies will be in a coop/run at all time unless they are in the garden with me. I'm not sure how to approach this. When the son/DIL came over to see our chicks they brought it up again. Saying that they don't want to get in the middle of it and they are afraid that this will start a war. i REALLY don't understand! It makes no sense to me! That would be like them getting mad if we got a cat. My daughter loves the mom & dad and they are like second grandparents. I haven't been to visit them (we do on a weekly basis) because I don't want to tell them yet! I need advice!
