    I have read so many awful stories on here about neighbours, that I'd thought I'd share a good one. Before anyone flames me, I am trying to keep my chickens on my property. I watch them as closely as I can, and steps are being taken to set up fencing. But I am having a short term problem keeping them home.

    Short story: I've been sick with worry over my chickens straying to my neighbours' property, and guiding them back if I catch them there. This isn't I neighbour I know yet (I know...BAD neighbour!). Turns out...he likes having them there!

    Not a long-term solution, but a great relief.

    If you suspect something going awry, I always bring over a dozen eggs.
    Works like a charm!

    Oh, there will be eggs, just as soon as I have a dozen.
