That may just be the answer to this overrated chicken about a pet fox? Maybe I could hook up a pen/den for the one I have roaming around...feed it..nurture it.  (Cycle of nature here with all the Earthy Crunchies' ideas..survival of the fittest)..Hey maybe Beacon will be on National Geographic instead of in the NY TImes....Are we allowed to have them as pets (fox) in Beacon????  LOL..

Ok and I grew up with a rabbit cage outside on stilts..and guess what..had to get rid of attracted did our neighbors compost pile.
All this is great if someone is indeed a mile away but not in neighborhoods whete you are in close proximity to your neighbor..that is not idyllic

Vermin thing is not over blown! As to restaurants also attracting vermin that is why I did not buy a house near one! Small lots are not appropriate for chicken farming! Some reasonable rules are needed.

I grew up with a coop in the back yard. With roosters. Nearest neighbor was a mile away through a swamp so it was possible, but not advised: roosters are annoying as heck.

It was nice to go out in the morning, rummage under the hens, carry some eggs back inside, clean them off, crack them and drop them directly into the iron skillet (sometimes there was a speck of blood in the middle of the egg: sorry chicken embryo, and another problem with having roosters around).

That, and the fresh goat milk: it was idyllic. It's actually an aspect of an enjoyable life to be more intimately involved with where your food comes from. When people talk about growing/ raising your own food, they talk about economics, awareness, environment, etc.: to me, it's just an aspect of the good relaxing life. (Well, except for the fox raids in the middle of the night.)

As long as there are no roosters and it is kept clean, it's not a problem. The vermin angle is overblown, your average restaurant out back is just as dirty if not dirtier than a chick coop.
