    Well. I had a visit from the animal control lady a couple days ago. Seems some A--H--- neighbor filed 2 complaints about our chickens in a residential neighborhood. She said I could keep them in a chicken wire enclosure in the back yard as long as it is 100 ft. away from the nearest house. A bit difficult on a 77 X 140 ft. lot. Anyhow, I managed to gtrab Gen. Grant from the perch outside our bedroom window and blew it trying for Henrietta the bearded lady. She went ballistic. We took the General to the farm in S. Coffeyville OK and he had a brief encounter with his former companion, who is now cock of the walk and looking every bit the part. Henrietta was out feeding today but I can't locate where she is roosting. She is really shook up I think what with her rock star gone. If I can catch her we will unite her with him. The General is getting new tail feathers, but his running mate is MAGNIFICANT. I will shoot his picture next time we go up there.. I ought to get a couple of outside parrots like across town. They would want the roosters back. LOL
