Re: Suburban Backyard Chickens

Here in Salem, Oregon we are having the big chicken debate. Many people in the city limits want to have chickens. I like chickens and its ok if my neighbors want them. I won't try it because I think they would last long with the dog.

I think the city says if allowed it would be a mac of five hens and not roosters and they must be confined. I worry about neighborhood relations if something happens to the chickens. Do any of you out there have experience with chickens in the city?
