The lovely farm

Postby Louise » Tue Jun 09, 2015 8:03 pm

My son, who is both learning and physically disabled is an animal lover and had a few pet hens on the Chorlton/Whalley Range borders. He had a bantam rooster which disturbed the neighbours and generated a letter from the council threatening to take all his pets away if he didn't have his rooster euthanised. He has done this although it made him very sad.

If a chicken disturbs your sleep and you complain to the council don't think that chicken has gone to a lovely farm. He has been killed one way or another, there is no alternative. If you think he should not have got a rooster, he hatched him from an egg and you can't tell the gender until they are grown. Well he saw him through from birth to death and now peace reigns again in the area. Well relatively any way

Talking of lovely farms, I have just had a very close brush with death and it's time for me to hang up my moderators tools and hand in my special moderator's vis jacket. It takes me an age to type anything now and I am not very effective. I don't think the site really needs a moderator but if you do talk to Mark.

that's a shame Louise (on both counts). i hope you make a full recovery, although i'm less hopeful for the poor chicken.
