NJ Town Limits Conjugal Visits Between Roosters & Hens

Filed under: Silly!BirdsChickens

Angry rooster

This is sure to start a cook fight.

A New Jersey town has adopted an ordinance that regulates when chickens and roosters can hook up in backyard henhouses.

Roosters must show they're disease-free and they better not crow about their conquests.

Hopewell Township residents can have up to a half-dozen hens on half-acre lots. Roosters would be allowed only 10 days a year for fertilization purposes.

Mature roosters are not allowed because they're too noisy. Any roosters that crow too long can be banned from the property for two years (lol).

Mayor Jim Burd told The Times of Trenton the ordinance is a compromise between today's lifestyle and the township's agricultural history.

Chicken Has A Sex-Change!

Filed under: CrazzzzyChickens

Gertie was born a chicken but that's all changing.

Gertie's owner first noticed the changes in Gertie's appearance and behaviour a few months ago when Gertie then developed wattles, her comb became much larger and more distinctive, and stopped laying eggs.

"Then a few days later I heard her try to crow. She wasn't very good at it at first, but she's progressed nicely and now she really goes for it.

One animal specialist said fungi in stored feed could have the effects of synthetic hormones.

Whatever the cause, Gertie's owner is embracing her hen's new lifestyle,

"I'm not really sure whether Gertie has actually changed sex, but to all intents and purposes she's now a cockerel."

We wish the bird the best of luck in finding her (or his) identity.

You were born this way Gertie!

Cockfighting Rooster Kills Man

Filed under: Sad SadAnimal RightsAttack!Animal CrueltyCrazzzzyChickens

Man killed by cock fighting rooster

Here is a bizarre twist in an animal cruelty case and just another reason NOT to participate!

A man died shortly after cops busted a cockfight in Delano, California, because he was stabbedby his own rooster!

When law enforcement officials arrived at the scene of the crime after an anonymous tip, only six dead roosters and cockfighting paraphernalia were left behind.

However, authorities later learned that 35-year-old Jose Luis Ochoa was rushed to the area's hospital where he later died due to, as an autopsy revealed, a sharp force injury of the right calf.

Authorities said Ochoa was trying to catch the rooster when the blade severed his leg, cutting a major artery.

We are saddened to hear that a man lost his life to this cruel, disgusting blood sport, but c'mon people! Don't attach blades to roosters and make them fight each other!
