Regarding the matter of chickens in the backyard, what about the Innisfail Auction Mart?
It is noisy and smelly.
Cattle liners are coming and going at all hours several times a week using jake brakes in town.
In the fall calves are bawling for weeks on end, day and night.
No disrespect to the Daines family whatsoever but Innisfail is growing and perhaps it is time to move the auction mart out of town.
A few chickens should not be a problem compared to this.
