Adding my two cents... We have three ladies, who we love dearly! We got our first egg last week on my birthday and I could not have asked for a better gift. I grew up on a farm and currently reside with multiple cats and dogs, and the chickens are by far the easiest pets to maintain (and they provide us with breakfast!) and have had the cheapest vet bills. And I could just sit and watch them for hours!
As with any animal, it is about responsible parenting/ownership. Just as there will be bad dog parents, there will be bad chicken parents. It's much easier to acquire another pet willy-nilly, than it is to acquire chickens.
And living near 82nd in NE Portland, the sound of our chickens are the least of anyone's concerns... With the freeway noise, the sounds of crows and gulls in the park, sirens, and neighborhood children, our chickens and their clucking are a mute point.
Thanks for considering this topic!
