I hate Chesapeake Energy and all they do! I bought this beautifuful and very quiet property almost 3 years ago - it was sooo quiet and beautiful then ---- not anymore!!!! The gas wells are poping up all over up and down the road on the vacant property that was around ou quiet little farm. Chesepeake Energy is buying up property all over and people are stupid enough to sell it to them ---- thinking they are going to get rich off of them! We were offered get this ---- $5000.00 for our property , house and 2 acres of land! We paid almost $50,000.00 . I know it is not very much , just a couple of acres and a single wide home but it is ours and the gas company is just going through and taking out all of the trees and tearing up the pastures. When I stepped out my back door all you saw was stands of pine trees and blackberry marshes. I am SOOO ANGRY THAT i WANT TO GO OUT AND START SHOOTING THEM TO GET THEM AWAY FROM OUR PROPERTY LINES AND STOP CUTTING DOWN ALL THE TREES!!!! Sorry I am just so mad , the guy that owns the vacant property is a BIG business owner in town and he would not sell us some of the land 3 years ago, said he was holdong on to it for sentimental reasons. Well there is now tree cutters right next door making so much noise , started at 6:10 this morning and it is non stop. My chickens are totally freaked out and won't even come out of the coop. They are so stressed that they are picking each other and pulling out feathers and fighting with each other. My 2 week olds and 5 week olds are so scared that they are piling on each other in a corner and I am so afraid that I will lose them from fright. Some one please tell me is there anything I can do to try to calm them??? If this continues for a very long time will it keep my older girls from laying ? PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHAT WE CAN DO!!! With all the gas drilling in this county the price of homes and land has gone sky high and we can NOT afford to move and my husband says he will not move again. He drives truck and is only home 2 days a week so he does not have to deal with all of this . Does any one have any advice for me esspecially concerning my girls, they are my biggest worry and I absolutely love them and I am afraid what may happen to them in the long run due to noise and stress! I am so angry that I am trying to type while crying and worrying. Below is a picture of how my property and surroundings use to look and when they are done for the day of dropping all the trees I will try to go out and take pictures of what is left. I was out taking some yesterday and one of the supervisors came to my door and told me I was harrasing the workers by standing on my backyard and taking pictures and asked me to stop. Do you believe that ?????
