Station car park chickens.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the owners of the community chickens? The constant screeching at 6am every single day is getting tiring.

  • What do you imagine they're going to do about it?

  • What solution do you have in mind?

  • That is what chickens do

  • I think there's a note on the side on the coup with the number on it.

    But a word to the wise; if you try to get them banned or moved or whatever you will find yourself extremely unpopular. Why live in a rural place and hate the sound of chickens?

    Your lucky there isn't a cockerel in there :-)

    Personally, I love hearing and seeing the chickens early in the morning. They have been a source of joy and have kept me grounded during all the ups and downs we've been going through this year. I know others who feel the same.

  • Is lower Wivenhoe rural? At a guess, it has the same population density as some areas of London.

  • Not if you think about it. It's surrounded by woods and fields with some cows mooing and baa-ing a lot.

    And chickens of course (!)

    It also depends on whether you're talking about London or its suburbs

    However, looking back at what I wrote, and having read your post, I think "semi-rural" would have been a better word.

  • Not many cows near the station !!

  • Its neither rural nor semi-rural but well within the confines of a small town with a population close to 10000. On one side you have a large housing estate and on the other a busy railway line. Semi rural would include housing on the back road to Alresford or maybe Keelers Lane but certainly not in lower Wivenhoe.

    That said, I still can't think of what can be done to stop Chickens making a noise at 6.00 in the morning!!

  • This is a joke right? Chickens. Making a bit of noise. Get a grip on whats important right now mate. We are in the middle of a global pandemic and for many people these same birds have kept them sane during lockdown.

  • What are the plans for the Wivenhoe chickens? The news seems to be that they all need to be housed indoors to ge kept safe from this avian flu?

  • Local volunteers are currently fundraising so that they can put things in place for this.
