Check your ordinances, it may not be difficult.  I keep chickens in
town, and so do a lot of my friends.  Hens are far lessy noisy than
dogs, so unless the law explicitly prohibits it, you're neighbors will
probably just think they're cute and love the eggs you give them, and
they won't complain :)

I was very apprehensive about poultry, but I am completely in love
with what they do for the soil/weeds/insects, and can't imagine a
healthy backyard ecosystem without them.
