I think most of the people on here have given a huge middle finger to their state or county by having more birds than “allowed”. I’m supposed to pay $60 a year for a permit and only have 4 hens (in chicken math, I only have 4, wink wink) But I was reading that the residence are upset because if their dogs attack our chickens then the dog has to be put down. I have an issue with this argument because first of all, we have strict leash and confinement laws, so their dogs shouldn’t be running amuck anyways! Why do I have to suffer because some people can’t control their animals? That’s like telling someone “you can’t have kids around just in case my dog attacks them”. Secondly, there’s hardly any “dog” laws. Why don’t we look at dog attacks VS. a hen attack, people are really scared of a little ole docile hen. I don’t see them complaining when they’re picking up that carton of eggs at Food Lion.
