Of course within a day that$100k mansion will be covered with chicken poop...

Or duck poop. Who's to tell the difference :)

Obvious answer: the chickens...

My poor chickens had to live in a teeny (15x8) coop with an automatic waterer. They never had a clue that they didn't have a mansion.

Looks like the perfect gift for the one percenter who has everything.

I'm a one percenter... only the lowest one percent. Does that count?

Hmm, having chickens in the back yard is all the rage in Palo Alto (Fortress Bay Area) these days.

Has it gotten so big that Neiman-Marcus now wants to profit on the trend?

Are we going to see a bunch of crazy Palo Altans compete with each other about who has the highest status chicken coop?

(Oh, wait, they already did that.)

Yes, it does seem to be fashionable to keep chickens now.

Beats keeping tigers. Or bears.

According to Romney, the lowest 47% don't count.

How does a chicken qualify for a loan?

We had Chickens when we first moved in our house two years ago.
The City posted a note on the door telling us to get rid of them. :(
That same week the neighbors in the back of us, went out of town for two weeks, and left a yapping dog in their back yard, that barked non stop 24 hours a day.
My Chickens never made a noise until feeding time, then they would cackle for a few minutes as they would establish pecking order. The rest of the time they were quiet and never made a peep.

Decomplexify to survive

I think its hilarious that it seems to half bother some people, that others are into a reversion towards being minimalist, rather than participating with the rest of the consumerists in the rat race.

I would do chickens for eggs out back, but I'm pretty sure neighbors would bitch and I wouldn't want to have to beat the snot out of some loser that works for local govt that thinks they can waltz on my property and tell me what I can or cannot do.

Everything is an energy economics decision for me, and I can get free range, non grain fed, brown chicken eggs from my amish neighbors for 1.75 a dozen, so its not worth the time/energy/labor to do it myself

Well, they might have to be careful about letting the chicken cross the road. The police in Ridgecrest, CA ticket people whose chicken cross the road!!

When keeping chickens is against the law, only outlaws will keep chickens!

Same way as everyone else. Lie about your income and assets and give them your paw print.

Most chickens have better credit scores than anyone who's bought in the past ten years anyway.

I have two friends with chickens one has 8 the other 4. I get my eggs from the who has 8. The eggs are great. They make very little noise (no rosters) and the neighbors have no problem, in fact bring there children over to see "the birds". Back yard chickens are becoming very popular in the North Bay and many cities are making it legal.

Is this why Neiman-Marcus is doing a line at Target! LOL

I had chickens, - they crowed in the morning just like roosters. Not as long, but certainly as loudly. I also was known in my neighborhood as the person who broke into neighbor's houses to deliver fresh eggs (I knew where the spare keys were).
