We've had 3 backyard hens for five years now and they have been a joy. I do believe that they should be treated just like any other pet, and recieve vetrinary care when needed, and be kept in warm, clean, secure conditions.
It's lovely to gather fresh eggs right in your own backyard, and it's handy to have them eat bugs and kitchen scraps. They are also a lot of fun to watch.
Our girls are very friendly, and run up to us as soon as we come outside (when they are free ranging). They even like to sit in our laps!
We've never had any problems with neighbors being bothered, and there are several houses on our street that have chickens.
