Hi. My wife and I are new to all this but are very excited to get into raising chickens. Reading a lot and learning a lot from this forum! We live in a "track home" type community. Our backyard doesnt face any other homes and our yard is large enough to hold a small coop. Does anyone know what the laws are here in tucson? also, he have a lot of questions such as: 1. how many eggs can you expect to get on avg if you raise 4 chickens? from reading the forums it sounds like about a dozen a month. 2. are chickens loud at night? 3. when the chickens stop laying eggs..what do you do with them? we really are interested in the eggs mostly. 4. how often do you have to clean out the coop? 5. do you need a roo if all you want are eggs to eat? if so, can the roo live in the same coop as the chickens? Thanks for your help!
