Raising birds like pigeons, ornamental fowl and small laying flocks becomes increasingly popular in urban areas. Bird owners in urban areas need to keep in mind their neighbors, not causing nuisance due to odor, pests, noise, or unwanted visits from their birds in neighbor's yard. We have provided some guidelines for owners of birds and small animals in urban areas that can help avoid a good deal of conflict within the community.
