MilesTones • Countdown To Chicken Verdict!
The minutes are ticking by before this evening’s meeting of The Brentwood City Council where the deciding vote will be cast to determine the verdict for Henny and Penny, the famous hens from Brentwood, who are setting on their perches anxiously. More…
The dispute that will be finalized at 7 PM in the Council Chambers will be the final decision as to Henny and Penny being able to stay in their backyard home or be evicted on the complaint of a neighbor who declares that the gentle hens poop 1000 times a day and she could carry it in on the soles of her shoes which would cause a multitude of diseases for society at large. The home of the neighbor is behind a tall fence and the hens are in a coop in their own backyard which, of couse would be quite a feat to project the poop bombs from their coop, through the wires, across the lawn and up and over the fence to the backyard of the neighbor. That is bull_ _ _ _ er…chicken._ _ ahh never mind!
The story of the plight of the hens has been picked up world wide and spotlighted on television news. Cathy Taibbi gave her take on the uproar (and over the fence) in her columns in The Examiner and Allvoices web news sites, which are also quoted around the world. Here are the links to her stories:
Miss Taibbi who has a background of zoology and has written several professional papers on that subject, is considered an expert on wild life and the envrironment. Tonight is the night—7 P.M. Brentwood City Council Meeting, Council Chambers.
