It really isn't lots of work Anne. If your community allows chickens, they will have a limit on how many per residence anyway. And probably not allow roosters. They get a bad rap for crowing.
I am very rural, so we have...err.....uhm....6 . And 25 hens. I think. Last time I counted. Which was maybe a month ago
And for those of us in most cities it's illegal . Plus I think my cats would terrorize them at every opportunity. I was surprised we can't have them, as this in an ag area- Middle California- and I can hear legal roosters from just outside the city every morning. e-v-e-r-y morning. I thought 2 or 3, just for the eggs, I know I couldn't kill and eat them, even though chicken is a staple in our kitchen.
