Noise is a problem, we had chickens many years ago, the loud one had to go :-(

Was nice having fresh eggs every day though.

Watch out for the fox :cry:

I know a few people with chickens. You can get rescue ones free I believe.

My Neighbour but one keeps chickens in his garden (row of semi-detached houses on the edge of a council estate). Don't think there's any problem with it legally.

yeh you can keep chickens in ur garden. no law to say otherwise.

however the foxes will maul your birds and leave a big mess in the process.

so cage them up and look after and clean up after them

then cut them up and eat them mmmmmmmm

I don't think I would have the heart to eat a chicken after bringing it up and looking after it :-(

check with your local council first, we cant keep chickens in our area but my sister can and does in hers

I work in noise control and there's no specific law against keeping chickens. Generally, as long as they're only hens there should not be a noise issue - it's the cockerels that make the noise.

They only peck your toes if your wearing nail varnish :whistling: & as for the ciggie episode...don't start me on that one...it still makes me laugh when I think about it
You'd have laughed yesterday... Rosie 'your deaf chuck' had a frog in her beak running round the garden :w00t: It took me ages to catch her :oops:
