My neighbor has chickens and they stink like hell. They attract rats which our neighborhood never had. It's not a good idea to have them in a city setting.
Yeah, it stink but if your neighbor takes serious care about his/her coop..That wouldn't be any problems. Perhaps, local authority should take serious action on this kind of situation. You can also try to give advice to your neighbor about the situation. If they don't want to listen, perhaps you should try contacting local authorities.

never had mice in my house but in past 2 nights have caught 4. Could they be coming from neighbor who keeps over a dozen chickens about 200 feet from my house. I don't know what to do as I have to keep everything out of my kitchen drawers and keep catching them. My wife is getting disgusted.
HELP !!!!!

Do you feed birds? We did and got mice so we stopped putting out bird food. Continue trapping while you find the openings where mice are getting in and seal them. This can be hard work and will take time. Don't overlook "tiny" openings. Mice can get in through them. Fill outdoor openings in the ground and watch to see if they get dug out or new ones appear. We've been mouse-free for a couple months but I still set and check traps. Good luck!

My neighbor has roosters and chickens right next to my fence. They smell badly even in my kitchen and downstairs bathroom. I know that a worker cleans daily but it is nauseating. I'm not sure how to approach him because he is a different nationality than I am and I do not want to offend him. I can not open my kitchen door without getting sick on my stomach. Any ideas? It really smells!!!
