Why would anyone suggest that we should be able to raise chickens in our backyards?
Fine if you have the acreage, but city backyards?
If you have lived next to a farm or on a farm, you will know that the rooster starts his morning round of noise at the crack of drawn. Do you know what that sounds like? It’s horrendous. Not to mention the fact that they attract mice and rats, have fleas and the pens must be cleaned properly or you have the stench of it.
We have chicken farms in Black Creek. Is this not close enough to get fresh chicken?
Why would anyone want to listen to the noise of this in your backyard?
What a pleasant thought.
Our backyard is our oasis for reflection, puttering, reading and just enjoying the beauty of the work you have put in to it, not listening the squawking of chickens and roosters.
