I do! I dont care to hear them while Im tryn to sleep or if theyre not kept clean, i dont want to smell them.
This isnt a farm community, I cant believe it is even being brought up.

Chickens go to sleep earlier than you do, so you really wouldn't have to worry about the noise (not that they are loud to begin with), and as long as the flock is kept small, the smell would really never be a problem either.

I'd prefer chickens in my neighbor's backyard to loud and smelly dogs.
