-In 1994, I was living in Dearborn Heights, MI, where there was a city ordnance banning feeding pigeons and doves. At the time, I had a bird feeder in my backyard which was kept clean and provided food during a very hard winter. My neighbor (neighborhood problem neighbor) called and complained that doves and pigeons were also eating out of my bird feeder which violated the ordnance. When the Police came they informed me that I was in violation of the new ordnance. When I asked how I could keep doves and pigeons away from my feeder they had no answer and simply suggested that I make an attempt to prevent it.
A few days later the neighbor complained again, and once again...the Police were called. When they came to my house they found a sign next to my feeder which read, "No Pigeons or Doves Allowed". The Officers had a good laugh and reported to our neighbor that we had taken steps to comply with the ordnance...we never heard anymore complaints.-
This is so funny I actually had to join this blog so I could lol in public! (Above)
I'm actually interested in this since I'm about to set my babies free in the back yard that has mucho 'dangerous' plants. My friends in the area haven't had any problems with their chickens and they have the same plants.
As a plant geek(Extension Master Gardener/Horticulturist) I would love (if possible) latin names for the plants in question. One mans clover(common name) is another mans ??????? Common names vary by region.
