My son and I have grown fond of the chickens that roam around the independence hall at Knotts Berry farm; but are bothered by the fact that they are abandoned by people for various reasons. We have been going up there and feeding them and hiding water containers for them to get water. I sent an email to Knotts asking if they would put in waterers for them and their exact response was I will share your concerns with our maintenance department, but please know that the chickens and roosters do not belong to us. We do not know if someone has dropped them off at the location or they have found their own way to the area. We have already had some of them removed, but they keep reappearing. Your comments will be shared. Thank you for your concern. So now that scares me even more as I am not sure what they do with them when they "remove" them. I did email them back to ask if they have ever considered taking ownership of them as the visitors to the park seem to love them, [except for the kids who instinctually want to chase them] Then they would get fed regularly and water when they need it. I tried looking up Chicken protection laws for the state of California but could not find any. There are about 50 chickens, roosters and chicks and I am finding myself worring about their quality of life. They all seem healthy but I am not sure how they could be as they just eat whatever and drink water that the sprinklers leave in the puddles. Am I being silly?
