My neighbors have a 10x10 fenced area where they placed a borrowed Rooster and 3 Hens for the purposes of Mating them.
The Rooster crows all day so each crow (which normally would not bother us at all) reminds me of the abuse going on in our back yard. There is a fence but the location is about right there.
They upped the antics after we took their chickens and put them in our coop a few nights ago. They were sitting on our shared fence, rooster also so put them to bed with our chickens. Tried to nicely explain Roosters kill chickens and the area is not wide enough but got comments as if it is "Gigantic". Finally I said, What you are doing is abuse, the Rooster can kill the chickens, they have no where to go. They are constantly being jumped on for sex, they look scared to death. The rooster runs in circles trying to get out.
Now they've covered their fenced area on the top so the CHickens have no chance to get away. Does anyone have any ideas? I would like to go over and just take them for good one night, not sure there is any other alternative?
Thanks for any advice. This is very upsetting. They call themselves Christians and attend our church, but are not members if that makes any difference.
