Pros of chickens:
  • Easy to take care off
  • Regular source of food from the eggs
  • When they stop laying they can be meat
  • Source of entertainment when they do stoopid stuff
  • Cheap to care for
  • Flocks can self maintain if you get a rooster
Cons:
  • Roosters are loud as crap
  • Chicken coops smell like the wrong end of a dumpster
Source of this information:
  • I am the Chicken Daddy
Anyone with the space and the time should consider getting a flock in my opinion. Other than an HOA that won't let you, why have you not taken the dive and gotten flocked-up?

The last thing I need are more animals to care for.

Growing up we had: Cattle, sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits, horses, dogs, cats............I'm tired of caring for critters.

Fair enough! You don't have any animals at all right now?

Yeah, my nephew has gotten all excited about putting in a big garden. I'm like, "Hell, no! I left home before I was 18 to get off the damn farm."

C'mon @Grunk, you know you want to look deep into the soulless eyes of a rooster again

Why would I want chickens? I have deers and pigs and fishes.

I sure as heck wouldn't have a cat.

Cat owners don't follow leash laws, and that's cool. I don't follow "be kind" standards. My F350 is too slow for most, but once in a while a cat will sit in the street thinking "he'll swerve and avoid me". This usually happens around 5AM on my way to work. Around 3PM I get to see the horrified kiddies filing past Tabby's remains as they shuffle home from school.

It's the little things in life that make it worth living.

Wow, that's fucked up. I hate cats with a passion but I'd never intentionally run one over. A lot of people view their cats how I view my dogs. If anyone intentionally ran my dog over I'd definitely be going to jail.

Haven’t you heard, it’s supposed to be manly to dislike cats. Makes your dick 2 inches longer.
