Farm Livin' Ain't the Life for Me
I love living out in the boonies of OH, except for one thing:
Our neighbor has roosters. And they don't just cock-a-doodle-do at dawn either.
This neighbor has peacocks, too! Have you heard a peacock's call?
And you wonder why I rarely sleep with the windows open.

There are wild peacocks in Florida. They sound like babies crying. Luckily there aren't any around here. They're only out in the boonies.
Roosters are annoying too. Two weeks ago there was an article in our newspaper about a kid raising roosters and chickens in a residential area. Some neighbors were complaining about the rooster. The kid's name was Omar something. And the neighbors that said they didn't mind chickens all had foreign names. Now nothing against foreigners, but when in Rome...in the U.S. you don't raise chickens unless you live on a farm!posted by junebee at August 11, 2006 07:31 PM
I HATE peacocks -- my sister was attacked by one when we were in elementary school, and I've had a vendetta for them since. And yes, they sound like bloody murder!posted by Memento Moron at August 11, 2006 10:02 PM
Yeah. When I was a kid, my neighbor had roosters and chickens. Those things would wake me up at like 5 in the morning, so I'd just go out with a BB pistol and pop the little f-ckers. Eventually, they did catch on. That's what you need, a BB pistol.posted by Hector Vex at August 14, 2006 08:32 PM
