So I'm being proactive and informing my neighbors (in our urban area) of my plans for my upcoming back yard flock.... I know my neighbors on either side of me well, and they are both supportive and excited. The neighbor behind me, (where our fence meets) I don't know very well. So I hear her and her kids playing in their back yard, so I poke my head over the fence. Conversations goes like this.... Me: "Hey neighbor! I just wanted to let you know I'm starting a coop in my back yard so we can keep some hens for eggs. But don't worry, I can't have a rooster, so they shouldn't bother you guys." Neighbor: ??? (Blank stare) Me: "chickens...." Neighbor: "Ohhhhhh...... Chickens.......(slaps forehead) That sounds fun!" Lol! Mission accomplished!
