Default How to get rid of the neighbors chickens...

I live in the country and I don't mind the wildlife or the rooster crowing at all hours of the day and night. ( yes, at night too). But what I do mind is all the chicken crap in my yard and my flower beds and straw beds being strewn all over the yard, because the chickens get in there scratchin' around looking for grubs. I have tried to politely drop hints to my neighbor while chatting, like, " yea, just raking up after the chickens" or " watch it, there's chicken shi... right there." But he just doesn't seem to care or maybe doesn't get it. So my next thought is to just pick them off one at a time with the pellet gun and eat them. I'm certainly not going to foot the bill to fence-off a quarter acre of my property line, but I do want to be a good neighbor. I think I'll just kill 'em.

How to get rid of the neighbors chickens...

Well. I recommend fried or grilled with barbecue sauce is about the only way I can stand chicken. And only the thighs and legs and maybe wings - throw the rest of the white meat away - it tastes like...well....chicken

You could always stick a rock up their ass to stop the crapping.

Slows 'em down after a while also.

Invite him over for a drunken chicken barbecue. Shove a can of beer up the chickens gut-hole and rub in olive oil and seasoning of your choice. Grill till done. He'll get the point

Were you able to type that with a straight face?

Either have a frank conversation with the neighbor or get a dog.

Soak 5lbs. of corn in cheap wiskey,set it outside.

when their finished eating,just wait a couple of moments.

Not are they just stoned,but their also marinated.

Then invite the owners for dinner.

I own chickens-- they are not allowed to free range.

Quit hinting, go tell him the chickens are screwin up your yard and that he needs to stop it or else.

Nope, never did it.

But it comes from a true story.

Back in the late 1920's my Mom and family had a farm outside Metter, Georgia.

The old Tom turkey would always chase my Mom and her sister. (Both girls were under 10 years old.)
Was a nasty old bastard.

One day they'd had enough. Tackled the old Tom and shoved a rock up his ass.

He drooped around for a week or so and finally died.

Mom's parents never did figure out how that old tough tom croaked.

GAMO "Whisper" .177 cal. pellet gun.
Use the new PBA pellets,works wonders on loud roosters.
Gun has a legal silencer on it to keep the noise down too.

Don't know about your regulations but mine are that any loose chicken in my property is fair game!
