Even city dwellers with tiny back yards should have access to a couple of hens - did you know that many cities and suburbs allow you to keep a few as pets? You should totally check it out, you may be in a lucky zoning and be able to discover the joy of chickens!
They offer you:
- fresh healthy eggs
- pest and weed control
- excellent fertilizer
- hours of entertainment
- chatty, personable pets
- great subject of conversation
- excellent for kids
- chicks are sooo sweet
- easy and inexpensive to keep
- etc, etc
The only problem is they're quite addictive, you start with just a few and end up with a bunch... a big bunch... :-D
Speaking of which, I may be due to add a couple of girls to the flock soon.
