  • We don't have to run from a chicken.

    -You may have to. Having been raised with chicken barns I will tell ya, some of them ain't so nice.

    As for them being pets roaming loose in the yard. Not for me. We do live in the country and some of our "neighbors" have chickens running loose. ESPECIALLY if they have other animals, as a chicken eats fleas and ticks.

    Chickens don't tend to stink unless they are all bunched up in one barn. Most of that smell comes from the amonia used to clean the barns after the chickens are gone. I don't mind the smell of chicken barns, my Daddy always says "smells like money to me".

    You can tell the difference between a fighting rooster and an edible chicken. While you CAN eat both of them the fighting roosters are usually a little smaller. There is a place here in town that you can take your roosters to fight, but most people take them to Kentucky.

  • No I would not complain, as long as like Laura pointed out they do not smell as long as they are not bunched up in one area.

    On a side note a few years back an ordinance either was passed or was attempted to be passed to not allow folks within the city limits to have a horse. As long as the person wanting to own the horse owns enough land within the city limits and provides shelter and proper care, then I disagree with that ordinance also. Especially when we have hundreds or thousands of horses right up in the middle of town during the Celebration and other horse shows in town.
