Who else here keeps their chickens in an urban area? What breeds do you have? What kind of set up do you have? I am just curious as how many of us urban chicken farmers are out there

Middle of Phoenix, check out my page.

I have:

12 mutts (4 leghorns, 4 EEs, 4 leghorn/Bhrama mix?)
1 BO
2 OEGB
2 Sizzles
1 EE
6 Cuckoo Marans


They are all still chicks, so there will be some reduction once the crowing starts in earnest.

I am.
I have four mutts. They free range in the backyard. One went missing the first evening I had them FR'ing so I went and asked the neighbours if they had seen a chicken around and they thought I was yanking their chain

(turns out it was roosting under the deck and safe n sound)
Its not very common practice around my area but its growing

I'm illegal in downtown Philadelphia. I can see city hall from my house, and the liberty bell is about a 10 minute walk.

I have the 12 pullets listed below, and 3 new chicks, a splash and a black Marans, and blue barred Olive Egger.

I have a large yard for the city, and they "range" all day. So far so good. Still waiting on some eggs!

We let them free range in our backyard for now. I plan to build a run within the next year or so. I'm getting tired of the chicken poo everywhere. We have a good sized lot...so i'm thinking about fencing off part of the backyard for the chickens.

Here is a pic of the coop. I still haven't finished.

-- that live in a little tykes play house and have the whole fenced-in yard as a run.
I get between 3-8 eggs a day, the only problems that I have had with predators was when my neighbor what on vacation and left 6 outdoor cats which started eating my 10 week old chicks

I am legal but the city gov. does not like it at all!
