I'm jealous of your chickens I'd like a few, and we're allowed them where we live, but I'd worry about the terrier boy eating them. He's already spent all of his 8 years hoping that the parrot will one day fly into his mouth

Plus, a good portion of the backyard is devoted to our tortoise's enclosure, so I'd have nowhere secure for wee chickens to be. I do ogle the babies at the feed store though

you could get a trio of bantams (mini chickens) they only need 2 sqft per bird of inside space and 5sqft per bird outside...
and there super cute.
they lay lots of eggs, there just smaller...

get 3 hens for just eggs or a roo and 2 hens and eat some eggs and hatch the rest to sell

i think bantam cochins are adorable...
see sooo fluffy!

though you would have to keep the terrier boy away from the cluck clucks lol

i LOVE bantams, when i get my own place i wanna a a breeding trio of the 4 breeds i just posted.

i think everyone should have chickens...how many folks can say their pet makes them breakfast? lol
