I'm not sure if this is where this should go, if its in the wrong spot- please move it! ANYHOW... My neighbor to the back (perpendicular to my property), Mr.B, has a large flock of chickens with at least 3 roosters. To the best of my understanding, they free-range 24/7 (by the sound of things!). There's a fence between his property line and those that lie on my street, perpendicular to his. I know, without a doubt, that there's a hole somewhere in the fence between his and my immediate next door neighbors' yard because Mr.B's chickens are *always* in the yard next door and, consequently, they're always trying to get into *my* yard too. I've got a fence between my yard & my next door neighbors yard, mostly to keep my chickens in and Mr B's chickens out. Its worked fine all summer. His chickens stayed in my neighbors yard, mine stayed in my yard and the two flocks ignored each other... until I rehomed my rooster. My girls are still staying in, Mr B's junior-man-on-the-totem-pole roo? Not so much. I havent figured out how he's doing it, but he's finding his way through the fence & into my yard and is VERY interested in my girls. I must chase him out of my yard 4 times per day and even as I type... it looks like its gonna be 5 times today... *excuse me for a sec!* Honestly- I dont *really* mind too much. He seems like a nice rooster and, despite his best and most flattering attempts, my girls totally ignore him. I wouldnt even mind adopting him if he didnt have a piercing, nails on the chalkboard, goes-right-through-you sort of crow that he does ALL day. But, the fact of the matter is- he's not my chicken, he's not my responsibility, and I sort of like not having a rooster to worry about shushing in the morning (or turning mean and attacking my son!). I'm not totally sure how to handle this, tho. I dont want to complain- mostly because I suspect that my immediate next door neighbor isnt thrilled to have Mr B's chickens in his yard all the time (judging by his attitude when he brought me 3 brown eggs he'd found in his shed one day, thinking they were mine- my girls are EE's). I dunno if he has complained to Mr B- but if he has, I dont want to fan a potential fire or be seen as a whiney, problem neighbor, especially considering that I have chickens, too. Even though mine are kept securely (or so I thought!) in my yard- I may need a favor one day kwim? (Also, I am secretly coveting his black, white, red & green EE roo so much that I'm considering asking if I can borrow him for a few weeks next spring... why cant HE be the one sneaking into my yard?!?!). OTOH- if my next door neighbor raises enough of a stink with the right people at some point, it may not bode well for either Mr B or myself, kwim? Especially considering that, according to my deed, I'm technically not supposed to have "livestock". Is there a way to mention this without seeming like I'm complaining?
