In Auckland, you can have upto six hens but no roosters, because roosters are noisy. At certain times in the day, my girls get very noisy too and I worry about the neighbours.

So, I’m taking them a little peace offering to show them that I am thankful that they are putting up with the chicken talk.

[My lovely neighbour seemed genuinely happy to see me and graciously accepted the gift. She acknowledged that they could indeed hear my chickens but assured me that they loved the natural sound of the birds in the reserve adjacent to us, and did not mind the chicken noises either. Thanking God for good neighbours; I am indebted to them]
