O.k I have a bunch of well cared for pets, many of them reptiles/amp,2 rabbit, 1 guinny pig,2 cockaiels,1 dog, 2 stray cats,8 rats for breeding. My family is really miffed at my chickens in the basement. They claim they will make my kids sick, are dirty and one who is a real winner said cps should take my kids. My own mother said I had a screw lose because of the chickens but apparently I'd be ok if I owned a farm? I have 4 bantam chickens in my basement were the kids have no access to them, they will be out side in 3 months they aren't that messy though they are a bit dusty.Is it that odd to own chickens?
