This is part 2 of my post "Me, My family, my chickens, my neighbors chickens. Last year their ugly yard birds kept coming over here, terrorizing my sweet flock of silkies, eating MY chicken's food, tearing up my husband's garden, etc. I caught them and put them in his pen...THREE TIMES! One of his hens had chicks and turned mean so he let the others out. Of course they came running over here. Now they are ALL here day after day, including the 3 month old chicks. I have HAD it. I've told them not to let them out but they don't listen. I don't want to harm them, and I'm through catching them, as they let them right back out. I've used a motion detector sprinkler that shoots water but they just find another route over to my yard. I don't want to kill them. I told my husband I'd like to find some sort of "circus gun that shoots...um....SOMETHING. He said, "Like confetti?" LOLOL I said no, like ping pong balls or something. But I'd just have to pick the balls up. I just want to scare them off, but my garden hose won't reach them. I thought of paint balls but don't want MY chickens to eat paint. I wish I had a fire hose...something that will squirt 80-100 ft. What could I use??? I thought of a sling shot with rocks but don't want to hurt them. No use talking to the neighbor...been there, done that. He just lets them out again. I don't want them over here bothering my chickens, splorting their parasite, worm-filled poops all over my yard, where my chickens free range!!!! What could I do to scare them out of my yard? Right now I'll run out of go "Shhhhhhhhh" really loud. They run, but come right back minutes later. Uggghhh! This is affecting my health. As soon as I see them my blood pressure rises sky high!! My husband suggests we catch them, throw'em in a box and take them for a ride and release them...far, far away. But I can't do that to them. They got them for their 10 yr. old son. I do have a heart. Just want them out of MY yard!!! Any suggestions?
