    this is completly off topic....

    it reminded me of some of the posh locals in my city....every week or so, we have a airforce jumbo bringing in injured soliders at the airport...every every month there are notices of complaints by local resident about noise pollution??? can you beleive it?? if i were the council i make them pay more council tax lol.

    Wonder if they would complain if it carried their wounded relatives...:mad:

    These are usually the same people who go abroad on holiday and then complain about it not being England.
    It's a sad, sad world we live in if someone can't even put up with sound of a cockerel in the morning. I don't even think they should even be aloud to complain about them in the city. It's the sound of nature which lets the world know it's almost time to get up. It's usually the dam right lazy which complain, and those who work nights can't expect the rest of the world to stop just for them.

    Perth! I may be related to a lot of Perth! lol.... my great-grandfather's brother emigrated there (voluntarily) and had 13 children. My mother is in touch with some of the descendants as they tracked her down when doing their family tree. I think Eleita runs a plant nursery there but offhand I can't remember the area.

    Anyway back to chickens - we had chooks when I was a kid and the 'townies' next door complained about our cockerels.

    I would just say, get used to it 'cos chicken keeping is a fast growing hobby nowadays and many many people are keeping them in towns & cities all over the UK. There is a little enclosed overflow car-park round the back of the local police station here where I sometimes take Merlin to do some training, and someone whose garden backs onto it has a whole load of bantams I can hear crowing.... and that's next to a small block of flats in one of the most densely populated cities in Europe.

    Just wait, soon as I move somewhere suitable, I'm getting chooks myself - some Pekins and Seramas. I love bantams and the eggs are to die for.

    I LOVE the sound peacocks make, I find it really haunting & lovely & it reminds me of stately homes:) one day I'll get round to posting photos on here of the magnificent Percy who came to live with us for 6 months
    LOL Merlins Mum, we have relatives in Perth too, it would be pretty mad if we turn out to both be distant relatives of Waterlily:D

    Me too but would not want to live with one! I knew some people with a smallholding when I was a kid, they had a peacock which always roosted on their chimney. Which was fine, except that he always did his Mayy-OWWW! Mayy-OWWW! for at least 2 hours at dusk and dawn.... and of course in summer dusk was at 9pm and dawn was at 4am....

    After I went to India and heard wild peacocks there though, the sound has even more meaning for me. The Kula Shaker song "Govinda" has peacocks in the intro and really reminds me of India.

    God wouldn't that be weird if we are related...LOL
