For the last 3 months I had some chickens at my moms house with no problems. The neighbors all around me thought it was a neat idea and liked having the chickens out back. One had looked at doing it herself. This is an area with 1 acre lots and fairly secluded. The other day my mom noticed someone pull in the driveway with a white van..... didnt think much of it until 30 mins later when the cops showed up telling me they had to be removed. He had pretty much said that they had just got the call and got there so fast because things were slow. so that pretty much told us who it was. We drove around and found the van......about 3/4 a mile away..... with a large fence around the house and no trespassing signs all over......... Do you think we have our guy????? Why do people feed the need to rain on eveyone elses parade when it doesnt even affect them in the slightest bit??? Apparently the person has a hard time getting along with people if he needs a large fence with no tespassing signs all over in the town. I knew that this would be the problem.... not the neighbors but people who have nothing better to do...... It doesnt matter to them if they are not affected by it or its not hurting anyone. They just like to police everyone and cause trouble. How can we say that we are the land of the free with so much regulation? When we asked the neighbor about it she was appalled and told us how she got a fine for parking her car in the grass when she washed it. Ohh well... no matter.... their permanent home is done out at my grandpas out in the country between a farm and about 100 acres.... he is on a 20 acre piece of land so we shoudlnt have any problems there. Not to mention 2 of the neighbors have chickens out there as well. Anyone else in Beloit WI want to have chickens and get an ordinance passed?
