I've kept chickens for years and its such a rewarding experience. They really have little personalities and you get the promise of eggs of every day. If you have a vege-plot, then the manure is great too, especially for brassica's. Here in England the same zoning laws aren't quite as bad and anyone can have a vege-plot. However, there are probably some restrictions on livestock - not that I've ever found any :)

Great piece....though in my humble opinion, avoiding lawns and using flowerbeds, paths and vege patches is a much better use of space ;) One of the key ways of keeping a newly laid lawn in check is MOW! Lawn seed is normally a complex mix of different species. If a lawn gets too long, the longer species stop light to smaller ones and cause die off. It is these longer varieties that often leave the lawn looking brown and unkempt.

This really is great news. I hope it all goes ahead
