We went to see a house last weekend that had a chicken next door. The neighbors had also planted a vegetable garden in the front yard.

I grew up in a very clean, neat, safe neighborhood with beautiful houses. I’m sure the homeowner’s association would be on your doorstep within an hour if you brought home a chicken. I figure the advantage of living in a less orderly (=less “nice”) neighborhood is more freedom. Chickens? Farming? Old cars in your backyard? Why not? It’s the up side of urban decay: do whatever you want on your little piece of land. (Or other peoples’: look at the South Central Farmers; urban farming is a progressive movement!)

Mind you, I have never actually lived next door to a chicken, so I will be reversing my opinion if they smell really bad, or if there’s a rooster that cock-a-doodle-doos in the middle of the night.


One response to “Pro-chicken

  1. Haha! I am glad you are currently pro-chicken. They are the funniest animals to watch. Also, if there are not more than 10 chickens, they will probably not smell at all. As for roosters, I believe they are illegal to have in residential areas (because of the cock-a-doodles!). Anyway. I enjoyed this post. I came across this blog because I am looking for advertising space, actually. I’m with a company called Autofusion, managing the internet marketing for several car dealerships/body shops, and I have a client in the LA-area (the LA Car Guy Body Shop) who is interested in putting up an ad on your blog. Just a small text ad, or small graphic, if you prefer. Let me know if you’re interested, and what your monthly rate would be. Thanks!
