We live in a rural area on 1/2 acre and the only folks on our road are us and the next door anti-chicken neighbor. The reason I know she's anti-chicken is the neighbor on the road behind us said she called the county on his next door friend who had "too many". Ok, so our hens have been free ranging since they were 8 weeks old and are 5 months now. We have a forest of Ohia tree's and ginger plants between us ( no fencing) and yes the hens have made a habit of going over to her place and pulling off a few leaves from her plants. We bring them back whenever we see them, but obviously they keep going over. Yesterday she came over and asked if we would keep them out of her yard and even asked if we had a hen house to keep them in (yes we do...at night!!)... My hubby did apologize and sent her on her way. We just dont have the big bucks to fence our property and hate keeping them in the tractor all day and they are pretty PO'd for being stuck in there now. I guess I just need to vent! I don't get people that want to live rural and then can't take a few chicks coming into their yard. This is so non Hawaii 'cause most Hawaii loves da chickens! Btw, her cat sure does have free roam of our neighborhood! UPDATE: The fence is going up! Obviously they are my birds that need to stay on my property. Should have done just that before posting my rant!
