    Well it seems like everyone who you dont know...knows you have chickens. Well I live in a Historic town but up out of the town. Well I have been hearing the village grapevine and it turns out there are some poultry on the loose down in the town. Use to be like 4-5 bantam chickens...now 1 rooster and 2 hens. Some people like having the chickens around others dont! So this is where I come in. Both my mom and the village folk want me to catch the birds and give them a good home. Turns out some brats with pellet guns were shooting at them the other day and some of the birds got hit by cars before. I think these chickens are from the old farm across the highway that they ripped everything down for developement. Im going to go down into the town tonight at around 9:30-10:00 and see if I can get them on the roost. Lets just hope they dont roost too high. We already tryed surrounding them when they were on the ground but no luck there.
    I will update if we get them!

    Last year me, my dad, and my grandpa caught five roosters. My grandpa lives in the city and people didn't like hearing roosters. He use to live on a chicken farm with 2,000 white leghorns, he liked having the roosters up there.

    I don't know how hearing a rooster makes people mad. I am lucky we live where we live and can have as many rooster and hens as I want.
