I have backyard chicken yard with three coops and a run for the silkies and Cochins. I have 7 big hens, two little Roos, 3 ducks and in my fancy run I have 6 bantams. I live in town with only one neighbor next to me that likes my chickens. Is this too big of a flock for a backyard? They have enough room and free range. Anyone else have this many? I want to downsize but I love them all. There is no limit in the ordinance. Just says they have to be sanitary and can't get any noise complaints. They are clean and quiet. Well the ducks can be loud, lol.
