We've probably had 20 something chickens over the years.  This is the first we've given a space of honor in the woods behind our yard.  "Lucky" was the sole survivor of a gory attack on our coop a few years back.  She managed to re-integrate with a couple more groups of chickens.  Her secret was always taking the highest roost position at night.  Never the top of the pecking order, but she had a keen sense for survival.

Our metrowest town is classified as an "agricultural community" which means there is a low bar to having animals or starting a farm.  We could have chickens and goats pretty easily and might do something like that someday when I have the time (retirement).

Chickens are very low maintenance, and the eggs are awesome.  Plus they chomp down all of your leftover food and turn it into more food or fertilizer, which is pretty cool.
