WBZ NewsRadio reports on the efforts by Empower East Boston to keep the chickens it was raising in the heart of East Boston's Eagle Square after a city animal-control officer ordered the fowl removed. More than 470 people have signed an online petition.
Although the Eastie Chickens are taken care of and cleaned every day and they do not make any noise, we are being forced to remove them.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
I live in Eastie. I love
I live in Eastie. I love chickens. I love it when neighbors do good shit to help the community.
But did they have a permit? It's not immediately clear to me.
What kind of life is that ...
... for the chickens?
Probably not awesome, but...
...do you have any idea what life is like for most chickens?
Mediocre use of whataboutism.
Go get a room...
...with John Costello.
As opposed to..?
Being eaten by hawks and coyotes?
Probably pretty comfy.
Yes, how wonderful to be kept
Yes, how wonderful to be kept in a cage too small. You're too compassionate.
Chicken feed attracts rodents
Chicken feed attracts rodents , farms with animals should be kept apart from large populated urban neighborhoods.
why isn't it Chicken Square?
There is no way anyone gives a fuck about these chickens being there except for "the rules":
The coop appears well maintained, it's as far from buildings as possible...in fact, Eagle Square is like the least dense part of East Boston.
I bet I know
The complainer wants to evict the chickens so he can rent out that little yellow house for $800 a month and charge extra for a straw bed.
Yeah, those chickens must
Yeah, those chickens must really annoy the neighbors. Said neighbors being refrigerated trailers at a loading dock, and pickup trucks parked behind a cinder block wall.
bolding mine. can't be overstated when it comes to Eastie especially.
