Can you please teach them to whisper?

It would have to be a rather loud whisper to reach from his home in North Carolina but no doubt his powers of telepathic chicken communication are as vast as his knowledge of all things USVI garnered during his short vacation here.

BTW...if people weren't afraid of chickens it wouldn't have its own name, Alektorophobia. It is a very real fear and I find it quite terrifying that there are so many chickens everywhere in STX! I think they pose health hazards, are a nuisance and have thought of moving off the island many times because of the chickens!

I proposed we just have a BBQ at our condo complex. Getting a little tired of roosters in the middle of the night.

If people weren't afraid of air it wouldn't have its own name, Ancraophobia. It is a very real fear and those who suffer from it find it quite terrifying that there is so much air everywhere.

I would respond to this thread but I have Enosiophobia.

If you don't like the roaming chickens and constantly crowing roosters, start complaining to your island administrator, the agriculture commissioner and your senators.

or you could just catch and eat them. The last time I was there, I didn't see near the chickens that I used to see roaming around............I guess they heard I was coming and bringing a new soup pot and frying skillet.

I think they're novel and I love all animals, chickens included.  How did they end up in places they certainly don't want to be? HUMANS.  Humans caused a lot of suffering for chickens, getting them, then abandoning them.  They can't survive without water.  They don't like being in town.  And they aren't stupid. "Chickens have great memories and facial recognitionskills. They can recognize and distinguish more than 100 faces, animals and humans."   And every creature feels, especially fear for humans that discard living things like garbage and then respond to the poor creatures like they are garbage.  It's cruel, a totally useless and unnecessary trait only humans possess. It says more about those them than the poor chickens that would certainly rather be running around in a country setting.  BTW, I carry food on me all the time and feed them.  I try to leave them water but whatever I leave seems to get picked up, while a pile of real garbage left by humans is 3 feet away.

I don't know about that. They seem to be doing just fine in this drought. I see flocks of them daily. And they don't seem to care where they are: town, country, parking lots, open air restaurants...

I still say they are a public health concern.

In North Carolina the Canadian Geese have been permanent residents for years.  They can fly anywhere they want .  They seem just as happy in the pond in the woods as wondering around the Walmart parking lot and nesting in the parking lot islands.  Just like the chickens in town.  They may not be able to fly but that’s not keeping them from traveling where they want .
