We all have or had neighbors that we really don't care for. We are nice, polite, wave hello, yell "How ya doing" across the field when you see them, etc. They are the neighbors that no matter what you do they always seem to find something to nit-pic about. They are the ones who complement you but then in the very same sentence throw something negative in. You know the type. Well today while out in my garden, my oh-so neighbor strolls through his yard and over into mine to make small talk. When he is exiting back to his property my 19 wk. old Bantam Roo lets out one of his many cocka-doodle-doo's. I love the sound of a Rooster's crow, it brings back so many cherished memories for me. That is the one and main reason I decided to get chickens, well for the eggs too! Anyway, after my Roo lets out his famous crow I reply back "I hear ya guy, keep talking to me." The oh-so neighbor who was almost up to his house yells "Hey, I gotta ask you something." He walks all the way back over to the edge of my garden (there's a lot of land in between our homes). When he finally reaches the garden I reply " What is it that you need to ask me?" He then ever so kindly with a smile & a wave of his hand asks "Do you ever get sick of that?" "Sick of what?" I questioned and some what puzzled because I truly did not know what he was referring to. Then my Roo crows again. "That" the oh-so neighbor replies. I said "What, the crowing?" He says "yes do you ever get tired of hearing it?' My reply "Oh nooooo, I love the Rooster's crow. It was what I was raised with and cherish." The neighbor says "With that....crowing all the time". I said "That's nothing, my grandfather always had 2 or 3 Roosters, I think nothing of it and love the sound." My eyes lit up and I flashed a sincere smile with some deviousness hiding behind it that said......"Say something so nit-picky again and I'll go out and get two more to listen too!" He graciously walked back to his house and I continued smiling the whole time I finished picking my tomatoes because that is exactly what I'd do!! Come on people, you live in the country, it's rural farmland. If you don't like to hear Roosters crowing, cows mooing, ducks quacking, pigs oinking, horses neighing, tractors plowing, harvesters harvesting, kids yelling, etc.... MOVE BACK TO THE CITY!!! NO OFFENSE TO ANY "CITY" BYC MEMBER for I know you love chickens, ducks, turkeys or some sort of animal. The thought of another Roo is ohhh-sooo tempting!!!
