I just finished making up a dish of treats for the chickens in my kitchen when I hear a knock on the door. Its the animal control officer making his surpise inspection of my chickens and coop. Of course my dogs start jumping all over him. They don't do that to anyone else, but lets jump on the animal control officer. Thank heavens he is a cool guy. I had just let them out to free range and then came in to make them a dish of treats, so when he showed up they were running all over the yard. So he couldn't count them, and took my word for how many I said I had. Then I felt bad about not being totally honest so I said, well I was thinking of getting more, and that would bring me over the amount I am licensed for can I get permission for that? So he says, look I don't give a s**t how many you have unless I get a complaint from the neighbors. Ahh, relief. He turns and says well I gotta go look at some goats up on thicket street.....goats, you can have goats in this town?! edited because I can't type without typos.
