Keeping chickens in a residential area is just another example of people getting back to their rural roots. People are increasingly incorporating aspects of rural life into residential living. Whether it's using a woodburning furnace or OWB to keep warm, keeping chickens as pets (or rabbits, ducks or geese) or maintaining a vegetable garden in our back yard, we all embrace different aspects of rural life and incorporate them into residential living. It's the American way of life, a reflection of our self sufficiency and a reminder of what it took to build our great nation. At best, a crowing rooster might be a minor annoyance, but certainly no worse than the trains making their way through South Williamsport at midnight or 1:00 in the morning blowing their horns at every track crossing. Certainly there are more important things to complain about.

The rooster is the problem, obey current noise ordinances ... don't outlaw the chickens. As far as the balls - take them out of the chicken yard. To see the benefits of backyard chickens see: ***********backyardchickens****/. Cities such as Anne Arbor, Michigan; Ft. Collins, Colorado; and South Portland, Maine have all voted in the past year to allow residents to raise backyard poultry. Don't reverse that trend in Montoursville.

After reading this particular article, I am appalled... or should I say aballed. When did it become State Police interest when a few balls are "accidently" kicked over your fence. I understand the fence was put for privacy and that it should be expected and respected but to not return a CHILD'S ball is the ridiculous thing I have ever heard. I live behind a church where children thankfully play outside all day and on occasion their toys come into our yard. I am happy to give them back to happy healthy children playing outside. Shame on you for feeling put out for a few balls. I hope your trashcan lids never ends up in their yard or heaven forbid one of your childrens toys lands next door. I think you nailed it on the head with the ornery old*****part... Remember to honor thy neighbor...(and not waste State Troopers time over plastic balls).
