We recommend that you speak to your neighbours before bringing your chickens home. A gifted box of eggs may go a long way to maintaining good relations, but not everybody will be as excited by the prospect of freshly laid eggs as you.
Your neighbours may have cause to complain to local authorities, and the Council or Environmental Health may knock at your front door, if you allow your flock to become a nuisance or a health hazard.
To best enjoy your flock and to avoid upsetting your neighbours, follow the easy guidance we have provided for you. This will help you to avoid problems and to minimise the impact your chickens have upon those who surround you.
