    This afternoon the animal control officer came by and said someone complained about my having chickens!! [​IMG] He said that he couldn't say a thing about the ducks, but the chickens have to go. I was crying my eyes out [​IMG] [​IMG] . Hubby says we'll go over to city hall and speak with our commissioners. I will be conducting an email to them also. I refuse to give them up, after all, they have not bothered a soul. Like most of us will say, its probably someone with nothing better to do but make others lives miserable. I'll will keep you posted, as I'm NOT going to give up, heck, I've had them for 8 months, and no one has said a thing! [​IMG]

    no, no roo, I rehomed him a month ago, and before that, he stayed in the house at night.

    I'm sorry. That is one of my worst fears.
    Do you have any jealous neighbors?

    no, not that I know of anyway. I keep asking the hubby who he thinks did it, and he says, he has no idea either. Why don't people find better things to do with their time, something important like reporting a REAL crime, huh?

    Yea really then maybe the crime rate would go down instead of innocent chickens​
