2009-08-17: Birds of the Same Feather Flock Together


I hate chickens and roosters. Although they are good to eat they are
very annoying to be around. I just spent the better part of an hour
chopping wood to make a fence around our garden. Yes, it would be a
lot easier just to by chicken wire but I am determined to spend zero
on a full production garden. It looks like I will have to bite the
bullet and get screen because the pea brained birds just walk right
through my gauntlet of protruding sticks. I guess they’re not as fat
as they look. I found a sling shot while tilling for phase two of the
garden and have seriously considered pelting the filthy rascals every
time they approach the borders of my farm but thought twice when
considering the repercussions of maiming my neighbors livelihood.

The roosters are twice as bad as they collude to sound off every
morning around 3:30 am. I can hear the leader crow far off in the
distance and then the crowing party begins. From then on the crows
follow every 10-15 minutes. I thought the rain might deter their
incessant chatter but it just slightly dampens it. My earplugs work
o.k. against the distant birds but there is a trouble maker near our
house that likes to sound off right next to our window penetrating the
foam plugs rather forcefully. He may be the victim of a random
abduction soon.
