White and brown eggs in a basket

Actually, yes. Depending on where you live, some neighborhoods allow people to keep chickens in their backyard. You just have to have a coop, which is not too hard to build. They're cute and feathery, and they even lay eggs — fresher than you can get in the store and free! Can't beat that.
