So a guy shows up this morning, I was just heading into the shower and I hear my 16 year old talking to someone,..I hear chickens,..freerange and dog officer. Grabbed my bathrobe and headed to the door. GUy says 3 roosters and a chicken got into his garden and ate 100's of dollars worth of produce. Yikes..guess what i have three roosters!! So I asked him pertinent question,..what did they look like. He says reddish,..all like rHode island reds,..whoooh, I in relief tell him no can't be mine I have two silkie roosters one black one white and an auracana, could have fit a bit the description the auracana and yes he and the white rooster are boosom buddied but the black rooster has nothing to do with those two. Anyhow,..I say my chickens are in the garden shop next door all the time and they know if there is an issue to shoo them back and I will lock em down. He says they must not have tomatos,..I say again,..you are not describing my roosters and further yet walk around the corner I have three raised beds of tomatos that my chickens dont touch. If he said just chickens and they ate lettuce I would have been horrified,..but this was clearly not my issue,..and besides it was too early and my flock was still penned up. After he left I called around and found out there is possibly some ferral roosters in the area,.LOL,..someone must have hatched a lot out didn't want the roos and dropped them off...people are such jerks. Anyhow after the guy left,..my son told me he threatened to shoot the chickens!!! WHAT???!!! What a jerk! Needless to say my flock is on lock down for the day, the whole thing made me unneasy, I have had my chickens for 4 years, I only let them freerange the yard and yes they do poke around next door but right fromt he beginning we talked with the garden guys and they said not to worry they do not bother them,..in fact they like them. So until it is a problem, things are as they are. If they are ever bothersome i would fence in all the land around, but so far it has never been an issue. My husband says the place the guy is using to garden is 4 acres over, no way our chickens would go through the woods that far to even get down there,..but the guy has me spooked just the same, he appeared to me and my son to have a drinking issue, if you know what i mean, dangerous combination.
