As I’ve said before, chickens are allowed in Seattle neighborhoods, although not roosters. I passed these while out walking, and chatted with their owner who was out front picking weeds. She has a mesh pen and roost for them in her front yard, but she said they prefer to be out of the enclosure. She’s trained them to stay right around her house, on the grass between sidewalk and street. I think chickens have small brains for the size of their bodies, and didn’t think they could be trained. The owner said that if they stray too far, she grabs them up and puts them back in the pen. They don’t like that, so they behave and stay within range. Who knew?
