Flock Focus Friday, 8/29/14

The legal drama over my chickens continued to heat up this week as irate supporters of mine inundated town hall with email and phone calls. Last week the story broke in the newspaper and television media picked up on it this week. One news station was so anxious to scoop the story that they knocked on my door unannounced!

My inbox and phone have been ringing for interview requests, allowing me little time to focus on much else, but I’m hoping the end is near so I can get back to writing about more glamorous chicken-related topics like poop and bumblefoot!

If you would like to WRITE/CALL the players in this legal drama to let them know your thoughts, please do!  They are as follows: The zoning enforcement officer is:

Jim Taylor, jtaylor@suffieldtownhall.com
860-668-3848 First selectman,

Ed McAnaney, firstselectman@suffieldtownhall.com

The complaining neighbors are Karl and Sarah Stursberg, 493 South Stone Street, West Suffield, CT 06093

I took a little artistic license with this road sign.

waking up early doesn't make me a morning person, it makes me a COFFEE person
Don't bother me until after I've had my coffee...in fact, don't bother me afterwards either.

I don't care if ALL the other chicks have them, you are too young for an iPhone.
I don't start working until the coffee does.
I have begun drinking coffee on Sunday nights in anticipation of Monday mornings.
They said I could be anything, so I became a flamingo.
It's 5am and you're trying to sleep? Allow me to sing you the song of my people!

Since I just joined (about 5 min ago) and this article doesn't say why….. Why are they sueing you over your chicken farm? (I'm preparing to eye roll the city's reason… and get mad). And since I've only had chickens a few weeks now, what's an egg skelter? On a positive note, I have 15 chickens that were given to me a few weeks ago. I'll have to learn the breed types still. But I know I have one banty… with feathered feet. I'm shocked how big its eggs are for its size, compared to the other larger chickens. I'm… Read more »
