MilesTones SPECIAL REPORT! Brentwood, California (1/6/10) Many judges, it is said, conduct Kangaroo Courts. But have you ever heard of a Chicken Court? Such took place in Brentwood last night (not OJs Brentwood but the one in Northern California) where two hens were put on trial…I kid you not…which had everybody walking on eggshells.
A young woman in Brentwood kept a couple of hens in her backyard which stirred the cackles of a next door neighbor who charged that the hens were unsafe, could bring in bird flu, cause dangerous animals to come, that would be attracted by the eggs the hens layed which would make it unsafe for her cat that roamed freely. Not only that, but she could step in chicken poop and bring it right into her house on her shoes, which would cause fatal diseases!
It was reported to MilesTones that Henny Penny, being swept up in these findings, frantically ran through the streets, flapping her wings and yelling, “The poop is falling! The poop is falling!” All citizens ducked into their houses, after first checking their shoes.
This of course would be a phenomenon since the hens are in a cage and the two homes are separated by a high fence which would require incredible projection and aiming skills by the hens to accomplish such a feat.
