I'm on about 1/2 acre but I'm still in a subdivision so my neighbors are pretty close. The neighbor to one side has chickens so there's no worries over there. The neighbor on the other side seemed ok with my girls but to be sure I took them some eggs a couple days ago. The next time I see him, he starts telling me how the three of them ate all 9 eggs the morning after I gave them to him. He had a strange, yearning gleam in his eyes.... "They were so much better than store bought! The taste was wonderful! They were so golden and bright!" I've got him hooked now! Gave him a "free taste" and now he'll be begging for more!
