Definitely recommended getting a few chooks. The eggs are amazing. Let them free range, and buy or make a small coop for night time and they will just wander in on their own when the sun goes down. Usually in the morning they will have layed an egg to collect. Put out a container of water and shell grit to help support the shell production. I found the poo and mess is minimal and the kids benefit and learn from being involved with the care and maintenance of them aswell.
