Anyone ever raise chickens?

I was thinking about raising a few chickens, maybe 3, as pets. A story on the news got me thinking about it and i have done absolutely no research but I wondered if anyone here had and personal experience or opinions about keeping chickens as pets.

I live in the suburbs and know that chickens are allowed but roosters are only allowed with permission from surroinding neighbors.

I think i just want the chickens though...fancy ones like they have at the state fair.

  • They are really messy, and do you have a big space for them that you don't care what the ground looks like after they scratch it apart? Chickens are farm animals. Do you want your yard to smell like a barnyard? I don't think chickens are a good idea. The fancies are pretty to look at, but that's about it.

  • No, and I wouldn't. I've heard they can carry diseases.
