I want to raise a couple of chickens for eggs, for myself and others (to share, not looking for a profit.) There's a huge backyard right behind my house, but it belongs to the house next door. There is no fence that divides between the houses so I could easily walk into the backyard, but it'd be trepassing since it's their property. Both houses belong to my landlord so both houses rent. Would it be rude to ask them if I could put a couple chickens in the backyard? How should I go about asking them? They have a 3x5 garden plot, but otherwise.. rarely use the backyard. And oh! This is a small town where raising chickens is common.
