We got 4 mallard ducks, and 6 Cornish cross meat chickens. I think anyone could raise a few meat chickens even in town because you process them at 6 - 10 weeks. By the time the neighbors complain, they will be gone. :-) Here are my postings.
I have been teased about the ducks. I think they are really cute, but I keep reminding myself food is hard to come by when you’re allergic to corn. I don't want more pets. I don't want to take care of them over freezing winter. I want meat. So they fly, and I will have to clip their wings or they will fly into my neighbor’s yard. If you know me, you will know that I already have problems with my neighbor, so I am guessing that she will call on my ducks a couple of times over the summer. It might be an interesting summer. I don't think that I can get into trouble because I can't control my birds. The home owner would have to sue me and for what? I am a responsible owner. I will know if they go over the fence. Nevertheless, I have seen their exterminator sprinkling mouse poison around their inter-fence; therefore I will be sure if my ducks go over the fence I will get quick control over them. I have been working with them every day this week to get them to know me. I am sure I will have my food following me around my yard before times up. :-)
