You definately have the right to tell her not to put live animals in your pots. You shouldn't have had to give her directions so specific that they specify whether what she puts in the pots is live or dead. :D

Joyce has apologized for getting mad because I didn't like the stockpot hatchery thing. She said she should have used her own pot for her chicks and didn't know what got into her for yelling at me like that.

I still had the pots in the car, so I loaned them back to her and she promised to take good care of them.

Joyce owns the farm where my sweet arabian mare Ashen boards. They don't have much money and I try to help them wherever I can.

The luster of shiny new appliances can't compete with the virtues of Vintage: namely durability, simplicity, superior cooking and a cool retro look. http://leoladyshousecollectiblesandg....blogspot.com/

I think that anyone who would borrow another person's cookware to use as a toilet for an animal is an arrogant, thoughtless, moron. You were not out of line, she was -- big time!

And as for the "what's the big deal comments" above, I suspect that about 90% of the population would never use the pot again, even though it can easily be sterilized. The picture of a chicken-poop encrusted pot is hard to get out of one's brain.

That said, I suggest that you boil some water and vinegar in it and then give it a good scrubbing with some Barkeeper's Friend.

The guy who said a chicken in every pot--well, I don't think that's what he had in mind! . You should have told her the pot was for dead chickens--not live ones! I think you were right, and your friend should respect how you want your property used.
