    Thanks for the validity check.  As with the lottery, there are the realities of the lottery winners that can be documented.  Therefore, statistical probability is irrelevant since someone has had success in the lottery purchase.  That is all the evidence an ideologue requires.

    jb and mud, as somone who has collected many an egg from beneath a cantankerous chicken, you had better be quick and easy if you don't want to come away with a bloody stump.  jb, if you only get two eggs a day, you save those two eggs in the fridge until you have enough to do what you want with eggs.    If you need 8 eggs to feed a family of four for breakfast and you only have 2 eggs, feed the family oatmeal until you have 8 eggs.  Not as much cholesterol.  Also, you really don't need a rooster for the hens to make eggs.  The only reason you need a rooster is to make baby chicks.  jb, whether you consider it an important issue or not, chickens and eggs are very important issues to some folks here in Fayette County.  I remember a few years ago when bee keeping in Fayette County was an important issue to some of our neighbors, and our commissioners addressed that issue at great length.  They took into consideration all sides of the question and made decisions that everyone could live with.   It is okay with you, isn't it jb, if our commissioners work for all of the citizens here!?!?  It is certainly okay with me!  BTW, goats are being used, as we speak, all over this country to rid us of Kudzu.  Even places of higher learning, universities, are using goats to nibble them free of the viney stuff.   I grew up with a goat.  She provided me with milk to drink and to make cheese.  She gobbled up weeds and underbrush, which made less work for my grandparents.  She gave me a whole lot of companionship and understanding when the adults in my life weren't so happy with things I had done.  All Nell ever asked for was a clean pile of hay in the barn for sleeping and warm, soft and gentle hands when it came to milking time.

    I am sorry but I moved to the county so I did not have to deal with City or HOA Regulations..If I want chickens I can have chickens..Yes we had a rooster nearby that crowed at 6am but we also had dogs barking.I can understand not having a chicken house but 10 or so chickens in the country..give me a break. If some of the folks in neighborhoods in unincorporated areas have an issue start an HOA..or move back up north. I am sick and tired of city folks moving to the country and telling us what to do. If you don't like it we don't want you to live here.

    jb.... IF, that's a big IF, the DOT has issues with Steve Brown, I say that's a good thing.  It would tell me that Mr. Brown isn't just another "go along to get along" politician.  It would tell me that Brown has been working, not just agreeing with whatever the DOT wants to do here in Fayette County.  Some elected officials, politicians, will do and say whatever it takes to get along with whatever big governmental department or official just to pave the way for their own advancement along the way.  A whole lot of folks have said that is what Ronnie Chance did.  There aren't enough words in the English language to tell you how sick I am of spineless politicians.  jb, spineless politicians or self-promoting politicians are one of the main reasons this country finds itself with the presidential choices we have right now.  When a Secretary of State is questioned by Congress as to the roll that Secretary played in the death of an American Ambassador and other Americans, and that Secretary of State says, "What difference does it make now," that Secretary of State is below the bottom of the barrel for a presidential candidate.  Not everyone thinks the way you do, jb.  Personally speaking, I'm glad if Steve Brown has been giving the DOT fits.  It sends the message that Mr. Brown won't let them roll over Fayette County.

    ONE (man) Person with a Gun
    The Pearl, Mississippi school shooting was stopped by the vice principal Joel Myrick with a Colt .45, The Appalachian School shooting was stopped by two students with handguns. Both of the above incidents were stopped by the armed citizens threatening the shooter without firing. Oct 1997/Jan 2002
    Plans to slay everyone in the Muskegon, Michigan, store and steal enough cash and jewelry to feed their "gnawing hunger for crack cocaine" fell apart for a band of would-be killers after one of their victims fought back Aug 1995
    The mass church shooting in Colorado Springs was stopped by the shooter being shot by a church member with a CCW permit. Dec 2007
    July 1999, The Santa Clara gunshop shooting in 1999 was stopped by an armed citizen after the shooter declared that he was going to kill everyone. Police found a list of intended victims in his car. Only the perpetrator, Richard Gable Stevens was shot.
    The 17 December, 1991, Aniston, Alabama defense where a CCW holder stopped armed robbers who were herding employees, customers, and his wife into a cooler. He shot both robbers, killing one.

    17 December, 1991, 20 innocent lives saved, and it wasn't even news to ABC, CBS, NBC, or CNN__no bloody innocent bodies for the "film at eleven." What's more, it never even made it in to the largest Georgia daily newspaper. I was doing a site inspection of our Warner Robins (Robins AFB) classified/crypto account at the time.
    July 13, 2009, in Virginia at the Golden Food Market: The gunman tried to shoot several people, was stopped by a CCW carrier.
    Just recently, 29 July, 2012 in Early Texas, armed citizen Vic Stacy shot and stopped a deranged man who had just murdered two neighbors and was firing at police with a rifle. Stacy made a very long shot with his revolver, three times as far as the perpetrator was from the police officer, who had an AR-15 type rifle.
    College Park, GA, May 4, 2009.
    Two gunman entered a party and ordered the men separated from the women. Then they started counting bullets. “The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.
    When one of the assailants prepared to rape a girl, a student was able to access a handgun and engage the two attackers in a firefight, driving one off and killing the other before the thug could rape his girlfriend.
    “I think all of us are really cognizant of the fact that we could have all been killed,” said Bailey.
    Winnemucca NV shooting, 25 May, 2008
    The shooter, Ernesto Villagomez, entered the Players Bar and Grill and killed two people. He reloaded and was continuing to shoot when a citizen with a concealed carry permit shot him and stopped the killing.
    I could happily continue with this OVER 1,000 examples of where ONE "man" Stopped mass killings The stories are NOT reported for days on end like the Defenseless Targets being mowed down are
    Finally if you REALLY want Truth Google Suzanne Hupp and her Congressional Testimony

    to an investment group, so says the AJC.  Not locally, but the parent company in England, is doing this to the tune of $420 million dollars.  Dan Cathy and his partners will continue to own the local property.

    Mudcat cont
    Hens go "On the Ladder" they stop producing for a spell, so 5 hens produce ZERO eggs during this time, it's WHY if ya really want egg producers 5 measley little old hens aint gonna get it done, It's also why ya need Hens at different ages and access to MORE than 1 Rooster, Also ya might want Brown eggs AND white eggs (that means different breeds) In FACT I have hens that lay Blue Pink and Green Eggs (ever made a cake with Green Eggs? if ya want a really nice MOIST Red Velvet use Green Eggs) and ya can't buy Green Eggs at Kroger heck ya can't even buy them at Sprouts. I LIVE HERE FOR MY REASONS, and I've just about had ENOUGH of Yankees coming down here trying to make us THE lifestyle THEY RAN FROM . I WILL have my chickens and I WILL DEFEND my chickens the Line in the sand HAS BEEN DRAWN .If "you" were stupid enough to buy a House next to someone with chickens or likes to target practice on THEIR LAND and now ya don't like it,, "you" got here 2nd so "YOU" need to go, not those that BUILT this County

    True.  Add to the analogy that the person buying the ticket doesn't understand that $1 in either coin or cash is still $1.  What it looks like is meaningless. 
    These people who oppose our constitution don't seem to understand that our country has a clear process for changing it.  How about using that process to change the constitution rather than trying to justify violating it through popular voice.

    Suggestion to the county.  Give us landlords a method (even require) to notify that a tennant no longer resides in the home.

    Solid points.  Add:  How are they going to verify people didn't use software such as photoshop to place any name, address, or date they wish onto the scanned and emailed bills?

    Yea I know that                                                         probably shoulld have said fertilized the eggs instead of creating them, nevertheless 5 chickens produce how many eggs and isn't it easier to just go the Kroger and pick up a dozen?

    I'm happy that they are doing this. We've spent more time getting this residency paperwork together for the different sports teams than school.
    What happens when we lose 200 kids?  Do we relieve teachers and administrators too?  Why not require this before school starts?

  • Reply to: Fayette to decide fowl regulations   1 day 21 hours ago

    Um sweetie, YOU make eggs without a husband or even a boyfriend  Hens do the same thing all ya need a Rooster for is making New Chickens An Alarm Clock, and some folks like to gamble on which rooster is best .
    Now as to this new Law, Been here since 1972 have had Chickens here since 1972 and I'll be Damned if the Government is gonna come in now and tell me my Chickens their roost, and the fence are illegal
    BTW for the BOC Some folks raise Chickens for reasons other than JUST egg layers , some people actually enjoy FRESH Fried Chicken some folks even raise Chickens for Breeding Perfection, (ever seen a $5,000.00 Silky?) they had one at the Newnan Foul Show in '11) btw the Newnan Foul show is THE "Westminster/ Congress" Foul show of the US. People show up from Australia, Alaska, Japan, Europe to attend and show their Birds.

    Silly city girl.  You don't need a rooster for eggs.  Only if you want them fertilized.

    Pardon my ignorance                                                         but isn't a rooster an important part of the process in creating eggs and more chickens? Is the commission advocating that the 5 chickens are pets (with names) violating the most basic rule of farm life?
                                                                                                    These are reasonable questions and the commission should be prepared to answer them. Which leads to your question about Steve Brrown - something I do know all too much about. His involvement in any issue is determined by the amount and quality of the media coverage attracted to him in the aftermath. Politics as with show business suggests that one does not compete with children or live animals.  Good advice. And after Brown's mistep into goats being the tool to control kudzu, he's unlikely to step forward for or against chickens. That poor rooster however is unrepresented and he needs a friend. I'm thinking Barlow. Animal lives matter.
