I have an interesting question. A family we know wants to apply for a permit in their municipality that allows them more than 3 chickens. However, they need to give reasons as to why they need more than 3 hens. One of the things they wanted to know, given they have adequate space, is if chickens are generally happier if there are more than 3 hens. And more specifically, if there are any articles, documents etc., that state this, so they can present them to the board. This is not necessary, but it would help. Any other reasons as to why more chickens are better would also be appreciated. Thank you!
