I need to discuss our chicken desires with our neighbors. 3 homes border our yard - each side and in back. The property in back has a 6ft privacy fence so I'm not too worried about them, although they do have 3 dogs and a couple cats (their animals are well taken care of and supervised - never out of the fence.) The couple on one side of the house are pretty easy going - the chickens will be closest to their yard; I'm hoping they won't have a problem. The lady on the other side of us is a bit crotchety, but her dog is also kept in a fence and she'll hardly be able to see the chickens from her house. I'm sure she just thinks we're strange anyway because we have 5 kids and we homeschool them. Plain nuts. So, I've looked up the city codes for keeping chickens and it's a bit vague. Basically, it says that we cannot have chickens that are a nuisance. That might be up for interpretation. So do you have any helpful ways of approaching this? I see it as such a positive thing, but I want to be able to discuss their concerns as well. Any odd complaints that I may need to have answers for?
