A number of communities and cities are allowing people to keep up to 6 hens in their yards. No roosters just hen for laying eggs.

Keep on track

I want chickens so badly but we aren't zoned for them where I live. I'd love more critters in my yard but my dog...well. She doesn't appreciate their presence nearly as much as I do lol

They will appreciate the food. People are taking over so much of our wildlife habitat and they just want to live also. We moved out of the city into a smaller community that is really growing fast. But we are back into an area that still has a lot of forest and open horse land around us. some of the people that have lived here for years have smaller farm area and one has chickens. often in the morning I can hear their donkey baying. He is there in the fields as it keeps the cayotes and foxes away from his chickens. We have large birds of pray also, eagles, hawks, owls and vultures flying around in our area. We just love living with nature

Keep on track

In that case I'll make sure and set aside some scraps for him! Thank you!

Opossums eat a lot of insects and they really like ticks. They will eat them first if available. They are really a harmless creature. Not as pretty and fluffy as some, but really good for the area. We have a couple living in the preserve by our home and I am happy to see them there. I will throw scrapes of veggies into the preserve for them and other animals

Keep on track

I have had opossums in my backyard for over 20 years and they've never caused any damage. I wouldn't try to relocate them at all.

So there's an opossum that has moved into an abandoned house on my street. I've read that they eat bugs, and I was wondering if they would be good for my garden because of that, or if I should be worried. Will they tear it up or eat the vegetables or anything like that? If they will, I'd rather do a humane capture and release for them. Does anyone have any experience with this marsupial?
