    So I come home tonight, and first off the back garage door is open along with the roll-up. Ok, the dog is still here, but I am already irritated. So I look out to the coop and Ken's nephew's friends kids are in the coop, UNSUPERVISED, and there are broody birds in there. So where do I find them??? In the hen house trying to scare the broodies off the eggs so they can collect them. Thankfully I got there in time, but WHAT were they thinking!!??!!??

    Then the kids follow me into the house, and I am really boiling, and they start peppering me with questions. I was ready to freakin blow my stack. I know this is not their fault, so I calmly answer their questions and come rant and rave to you people. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I hate it when kids will just walk into my coop and they don't know how to behave! [​IMG] I know how you feel! [​IMG]

    Put up a sign, "KEEP OUT! Vicious killer, attack chickens. Make no sudden moves and back away slowly."

    If that doesn't work, put in a yellow jacket nest.

    Good idea! My cousins and freinds come here a lot and they practicly mess up the whole coop. I wouldn't give them the key, but my sister, (who is 9 years old,) would let them in. [​IMG]

    |I think the kids were thinking about colleting eggs, did they know what a broody is?

    I went to the feed store this spring and there were two young boys with their hands in the quail brooder making them run all over the place. There were a huge number of chicks in the corners piling up on each other and quite a few with splay leg in there as well. Not sure if they caused any of the splay leg, these were day olds. Their parents were just standing there watching this. I politely told the boys parents they should not be in the brooder stressing the day old chicks. The parents looked at me with this smug look and did nothing. So I went a little Biker on them. I have long hair, tattoos, a couple piercings, basically burly and I ride. I said "look, either you get them out or I will." You know, those two moved a lot faster than I thought they could. Grabbed the boys and headed for the door. After all...looks are everything....[​IMG] I just don't get some parents. They stood there watching their boys pretty much kill a number of chicks. BTW-It was a very busy day there at the feed store and those working there were a bit overwhelmed and didn't see this going on.
