    I just received news today of a good friend of mine having all his chickens,ducks,geese,peafowl,turkeys,and pigeons put down.

    I don't know all the details but he said they came and killed them all.
    He is very upset and couldn't give me all the details.

    Only said it was because he had a license and they were constantly bothering him and testing his birds.
    Told me he wished he had never got a license because it just gave them the right to come on his property and find any little thing and complain about it.

    I find this a bit exstreme these animals weren't all housed together or exposed to eachother???
    He can no longer have chickens or any fowl of any kind.

    I didn't know what to say except i was sorry [​IMG]

    They just came and killed them there in his yard? How? So sorry to hear that. What reason did they give him for having to put them down? eta: I guess those are the details you don't know yet.

    Wow. I'm just stunned. I was getting ready to apply for my license but now I don't know. Did he have a bird get into the wild? Maybe? They can cull all the wild foul you have here permit or not, reason or not. The others I don't understand.

    OMG. Note where I live, and I am far from the only one on here. Please post any further details if you learn them.

    Thank goodness I don't have any kind of license. Of course I can't sell my eggs either....

    I have heard this before from folks who told me not to get a license.
    Said it doesn't give you any rights it gives them the right to do what they please with your property.
    It only takes one person coming on your land and seeing something "they" don't like and turn you in.

    What kind of license are you talking about????
    I have heard someone else say this happened before, but I think it was because the flock was diseased.....could that be the case with your friend????
