Sounds like fun lets get some chickens we can have fresh eggs every morning, then life comes along. And your job the kids get tired of cleaning up chicken s**t and when it rains woo the stink, and the next thing you know you have rats that get the eggs before you do and the chickens are full of fleas etc etc chickens belong on farms not in a coup behind the garage next to the alley.

Is it really cheaper to keep chickens, feed them keep them healthy and sheltered than to go buy a dozen eggs for 2 bucks I seriously doubt it, yes if that's your hobby and your dedicated fine but the the last thing we need is people who think its fun and easy, and chickens all over, they need to go to the vet just like dogs and should be licensed just like dogs. They don't take care of themselves as we can see by the video. Just wondering once you train a chicken and give it a name are going to chop off its head and have it for Sunday dinner?
