Thanks, CG. Love the big hug I think it's going to work out; it was just a very frustrating event, when I arranged my day around this appointment.

OK, everybody now -- a great big collective hug (like CG's little emoticon) for GG from DC - may she feel it through the ether!

The "City" in which I live does not allow backyard hens. I can have hens because I am zoned AG2 and rural. There was a feature on the news the other night about a couple who had 3 laying hens, they have had them for 3 years. They are also zoned rural, but not AG2 or AG1. By-law showed up and gave them until Friday to get rid of them or By-law would seize them (and dispose of them because the HS does not have accommodations for hens). I contacted the reporter, asked him to pass my contact info on so that I could offer "witness protection" services to these three hens while the folks duke it out in by-law court. I got a call from the folks! The girls may be coming here tomorrow or Friday. Irony is that before amalgamation, backyard chickens were allowed where these folks live in the City. They are so devastated that they have to get rid of their girls. Grrr...I hate politics! I hate people who complain about things that are not infringing on their enjoyment of their property...If I lived in the US, I probably would fit in well in NH.

What else could I offer? I think it is WRONG that these girls would be slaughtered. So they can come here while their owners duke it out in by-law court.

Move to Vermont. They believe very strongly in personal freedom. Most of Vermont is rural and farm land. There is no Big Box store in VT. They would infringe on the rights of the little businessman. Even Walmart gave up the fight to get a store in. Now if they could just keep out those folks from NYC who want to change everything they don't like about Vermont.
