Zoning laws have recently changed and we're about to get 3 or 4 hens. I would like to place the coop right up against the back of the house. My wife is concerned that they're going to smell bad. We have neighbors to the left and right. The coop has to be at least 25 feet from their property line. We don't have a fence. There are woods behind the property. What are your thoughts on where I should place the coop?
