i am SO proud of them i HAVE to share this. my neighbors are pretty nice people. but they have dogs and i get bothered cuz they just let them loose whenever without even watching them. i ONLY care cuz they Poo in my yard and its gross. otherwise they could care less bout the chickens, my cat, my dogs , my stuff (other than to Pee on it, Gross) you know. i just find it rude. well what i REALLY find Discusting is that they just chuck their trash out their door and let it pile up for a month or two. Everything under the sun tears open this trash and it of coarse ends up in MY yard. nothing is worse than some strangers kids dirty diapers ripped open in your front yard. Well, my chickens have done what NO OTHER creature has been able to do. they got these ppl to clean up her trash!!!!! they are taking it (seriously around the corner) to the dump as soon as the can is full, and actually putting the trash IN the can. oh my i am SO HAPPY. see, my girls figured out they can get Over the 4' run fence. it drives my roo crazy and he crows non stop till i get them back in. well that was fine when they were ok with STAYING in. they get out as quick as i put them back in. so i tried just letting them out when i knew the dogs wouldnt be out. no dice. they want out all the time, and guess why? the neighbors Trash pile!!! LMAO!!!!! i guess they didnt care that squirrels and dogs and cats etc etc were in it, just not those nasty chickens!!!! So, we have been training their dogs with the chickens too. (oh and i realize the double standard of its ok for MY chickens to raom into their yard, but not their dogs in MIne, well, i only didnt care cuz i figured turn about is fair play. ** sorry its so long!
