i grew up on a farm and i know that hens lay better when they have a Rooster in the flock, as they have less anxiety. BUT, he will crow that is true.
We had some chickens here but my husband was to lazy to make a coop & just let them rome around the backyard and they made an awful mess. When he put an add in the shopper for them, we had a couple dozen calls from people wanting them.

My parents live in a rural area where each yard has at least an acre of land.
My parents had chickens and I think our neighbors had a love/hate relationship for the chickens.
I personally do not care for chickens. I would hate it if my neighbor had them.

I had a small flock, and had less problems and waste than I did with my dogs. I always got a kick out of watching them pecking around for bugs, and I didn't have a bug problem. I do agree that roosters should not be in the city plus you don't need them to get eggs. I personally like hearing a rooster crow, but I know some people don't. Though let's face it there is always someone who pushes the boundaries.

There are a lot of people who want to keep a small flock of chickens in their backyards for home use. How do you feel about having chickens as neighbors? It would be a small less than 5 hens and no roosters.
