- Chicken Prepper
The town of Wayne, where I live is currently deciding on whether to allow chickens on smaller parcels. Currently they allow chickens on 2 acres or larger pieces of properties and in this suburban town having 2 acres of land is a rarity. Victor Alfieri, a Wayne resident started this fight a year and a half ago, after a neighbor complained to the town about his 3 chickens (his property is under 2 acres). Victor and his wife have been trying to live a sustainable life and he grows all his own vegetables… we need so many more people like that. He even has a business of putting in gardens for others, you can check his website out at Woodlot Farms.
I don’t have current plans to raise chickens but I would like the option of doing so on my property, which is also under 2 acres. Raising 3 chickens can’t possibly be that noisy and the benefits of having fresh eggs and getting rid of ticks make it very worth it.
Many years ago, when I was 14 years old my friend and I hatched and raised two chickens and kept them in her backyard when they grew up (I snuck the baby hens into my room for a couple of nights until my mother found out) and I was shocked that when we put them in my friend’s backyard, her crabby neighbor didn’t complain so that’s proof that 2 or 3 chickens don’t make that much noise, especially since the chickens we had were in an area right near the crabby neighbor’s bedroom window but hidden by bushes. He sure did complain about everything else we did, so it was kind of a triumph for us that he never saw the chickens.
The preppers movement is here and we all have to fight for our rights for sustainability. I plan on expanding my gardens, including the one in the front yard this year.
