  1. Hello all, first time posting here and hoping someone can help I finally got a maisonette of my own with a garden shared with nice neighbours underneath, we got 2 lovely ISA Brown hens and completely in love however have become concerned how noises from neighbours on each side of garden may be affecting them All winter it has been so quiet and no issues at all, but it turns out as soon as the sun makes an appearance neighbour on left and on right crank up music (each side) super loud and getting *****ed shouting to each other across the fence with my garden containing my girls in the middle the sad thing is that neighbour on the right has 2 hens also.. (but they are badly cared for so therefore he likely doesn't care how the noise affects my hens), am at a loss for what to do, all winter it was fine, we have a mix of private owners but also renters with council agency, with the behaviour I've seen from the renters in good weather am concerned it will get worse from them in summer including barbecues etc, especially as they don't seem fussed how things affect their own hens, and are the 'type' to not care Was considering moving my girls and horse to a rented field that would allow both together so they are hearing natural sounds and not the neighbours, do backyard hens adapt to noisy neighbors or will it upset them? They didn't seem upset and were roumahing for corn etc but worried anyone else dealt with this or have experience with this situation?
  2. Hi all, I’ve been lurking on this forum since 2012 & after 2 children, 2 house moves, a job change & much MUCH research, am finally in a position where my chicken dream looks like it could become a reality. OH is on board, we’ve designed our new build garden to ensure it can accommodate a cube (pref. Mk1) with a walk-in run, & I’ve been in contact with local Pekin bantam breeders (we primarily want them as pets) and feel as clued up as you can ever be before getting new additions!) As we live in a new build, we have close neighbours on either side & at the back, so out of courtesy spoke to them all last year to make sure they were on board. 3 had no issues, one had a couple of questions re. noise & smell but said not enough to pay heed to the idea, just that they wanted us to be aware. From reading on here & researching, it seems that good husbandry should manage most smells, and generally a trio of Pekins shouldn’t be much noisier than 2 under 4s or a family dog; both of which we already have with no complaints 😂 Anyway, since speaking to the neighbours last year, one had now moved & the newbies are very much NOT on board with our chicken idea 😳 we spoke last week & she said they will attract rats (her main issue) smell, be noisy & that she doesn’t want to look out of her bedroom window & see a ‘monstrosity’ (her words) of a coop. Their house is behind ours so our gardens are back to back. She asked why we can’t just get guinea pigs instead... Is it all over? Is there anything I can do/say to alleviate her worries? Should I give it all up & as she suggests just get a trio of cavvies instead?! Feeling so disheartened now but don’t want to cause a rift with neighbours.
