    There are chickens in my inner loop neighborhood, and someone has a couple of big white geese (or ducks). Not sure why...do people eat goose eggs?

    So is this anywhere? Or can an HOA ruin things like they do?
    bruh I had to go run outside to make sure my neighborhood didn’t burn down!! That was a savage burn on northcrest village residents!

    There are distance restrictions. I wouldn't want one next to my fence, on either side. That's just not right and screams "dumbass".

    chickens give eggs, eggs have protein.

    Brought home 2 from kindergarten back in the day (the class had an incubator and we hatched them out). All was well and good for a few months until 1 of them grew up and realized he was in fact a rooster, who began making rooster noise every morning. I remember my dad saying that one of the neighbors asked him if he'd been hearing a rooster somewhere. They were quickly shipped off to my grandparents, where the rooster got eaten and the hen lived out her days.

    They're also loud as hell.

    Noise, smell. Wasn't meant specifically for chickens, it fell under the same regs that say you can't have goats/sheep/etc....
