Reprieve!…For Now

Jan. 13th

Our neighborhood property manager is arranging a meeting between us and the board next week.  We’ll have a chance to tell our side of the situation and hopefully persuade them that the girls are no menace to society.  Jim will do most of the talking and there is a reason for that.  A friend of ours recommended that Jim give me  a sedative before the showdown.  He was only half-joking.  I do tend to get over emotional and run off a the mouth at times.  Again, many of you are NOT shocked.  We are thrilled that the 15 day execution has been postponed, and for now the girls are safe while we negotiate their freedom.  This is all we ever asked for.

Meanwhile, the chickendiary has gone “viral”.  Yesterday’s post generated so many views we broke the previous record for busiest day.  This is so encouraging.  I got supportive messages from all over the United States and from folks I have not previously heard from.  Thank you too, to all my friends and neighbors here in our neighborhood who have encouraged us to fight to keep our beloved pets.  We are not out of the woods yet, but this is a great beginning.  Viva la Chickens!

  1. Maybe Carl can be a guest clucker? Justice for the Pike Road Peckers!!! (sorry Jim). 🙂

  2. Carl is one handsome dude and a close personal friend to Doug Myatt. I hope Carl is OK. He’s been missing for a week. Jim forgives you.

  3. Show them all ur support & maybe they will realize how badly this will reflect on them!!!!

  4. Hee hee. I read the first sentence as “Our neighborhood poultry manager.”

  5. Long Live the Pike Road Peckers!! I hope that all of your supportive neighbors fill up those chairs at the meeting.

  6. Following your story and hoping all goes well.
