Urban Chickens

Anyone raise chickens in a more urban type setting? Like less than an acre of land.

Curious to see some setups.

the illegals outside of my school had a few chickens on about a piece of land...well it was actually their front porch...lol. They kept them in stacks of tires for some reason.

it sucks to have chickens.
They smell.
a lot.
All you get from them is eggs covered in chicken crap, unless you feel like killing them.
but then you get a bloody chicken covered in chicken crap with chicken blood all over you.
Not worth it in my opinion.

I used to raise some, built a big run and whatnot. No longer have them due to the infestation of coyotes, now I am trying to thin out the coyotes so I can raise again. I did work in big producers barns for awhile. Each barn held like 15,000 and there were 3 barns. The worst part about it was all the chicken **** which is high in ammonia, so before you could go in you had to turn the fans on high to run some of the fumes out. And once you were in the ammonia was still so high your eyes watered, and it doesnt help any that it is in the upper 90's in the barn due to the age of the chicks.

***Edit saw that you said LESS than an acre, which defintiely does not apply to me**

Might want to check zoning in your area...most places which are inside any city limits will not allow you to raise any type of farm animal.

On another note...curious as to why you want to raise chickens?

i got four chickens in my backyard.
and we live on about 1/4 acre inside a HOA neighborhood.

I'll take pictures of the set up we have. It's a 12'x6' run with a sheet metal roof.

This thread leaves plenty of opportunity for some sterotype-based jokes. (or what the ignorant would call a "racist joke")

Just build a little run with a top on it and put a coop for them to roost and get out of the weather. I've seen it done exactly like that in the middle of the city in France.

I lived in Manhattan back in the 80s and one of the people in my building kept some on the roof. built a coop up there and everything. They had to net over the run that they had set up because a Falcon had decided it like chicken too.
can't get much more urban then The City.

Some illegals had some in my old neighborhood, they lived two house up and had sevral hens and a couple of roosters running around loose in the yard. It was always a good time when the roosters would wonder down toward my house and the neighbors cat decided to take him on, they fought atleast twice a week. That poor cat never learned.

House next door had some they all got eaten by something Foxes, weasel, hawks. Another house had some too they all got killed. About two weeks ago I saw a hawk snatch a squirrel in my backyard. Roosters are very loud and will get on your nerves. The people next door had one chicken that brook his leg when it was young and they raised it by hand it would follow you around the yard like a dog. That chicken came up missing too.
