buying a chicken hawk? which use of the words do you mean? i can guess 1# Chicken Hawk is an unofficial designation for three species of N.American hawks: Cooper's Hawk, Sharp-shinned Hawk & Red-tailed Hawk. While the term is too ambiguous to be of any scholarly usefulness & has become obsolete as applied to birds, it still enjoys colloquial use in rural areas. dnr-state-mn- falconry. All permittees must comply with local, state & federal rules & regulations governing falconry. You might need us local animal keepers to help suport you in your choice, in a time honored hobby and hunting skill. i eliminated the other 3 main uses of chicken hawk. 2#(USA political term) person lacking moral character & is hypocritical for personally shirking their duty to their country (and community), while advocating that others do so. 3#(music)unless you do plan to buy interest in the alternative metal band? 4#(slang)older males who prefer younger males ,then may i direct you to the

Newly elected Chad Askeland "Have you thought about what other animals this would bring to town?" he asked, listing predators such as coyotes and foxes. Has Mr Askeland not noticed we have lakes? =(water source) local deer & coyotes have been using these all along, ALSO skunks & ra*****! We have/had coyotes living 3 blocks east of walgreens & edges of town. I live less than 2 blocks from downtown plaza & have had in FALL 2007 a coyote 3' from my backdoor 4am.(PRE-CHICKEN in our neighborhood) What do you think keeps our rabbit and cat population down? Dont panic the city of Chicago has est.5,000 head count of coyote in city limits and i dont think its because of chickens. We live in a rural area, get use to the wildlife. Or get in bed by sunset and dont come out til after sunrise, pretend nothing living goes on all night. YES I AM UP ALL NIGHT,ask the local police that sit in collage parking lot.

i am female(she) not a he and yes StumpJumper- i am a smart pants! plus very high IQ, easily annoyed by ignorance, so yes that was my smarty pants humour reply to MadMarine's haha humour. i didnt mention the cartoon referances, songs written or the kansas jayhawks, just didnt have room (limit 1000 space) my humour tends to be dry or biting at times, i did suggest that it was option 1# for MadMarine. that if he really was interested instead of joking, there are still people who get up each day and care that another person have> life, liberty and persuit of happiness. (not just own wants and needs) if you feel this way too? i am working on a large 6 month project that would benefit local businesses, local residences & all of the state of minnesota. my effort, my time and my financing so far. i guess heres one of my many questions> Are you an asset or a liability when it comes to the benefit of others?

Wow, I bet you are a blast at parties! Wait, I bet you don't attend social gatherings because they are of no benefit to society.

well MadMarine i see we have gotten off on the wrong note-let me answer that.I'm shy & try to be reclusive most of the time. but the world keeps knocking on my door,from people that know me fairly well be it in england, demark, australia & gambia. To more locally in the states, fl, oklahoma, ohio, iowa and closer like windom, frost, austin, and even in fairmont. when they ask for help, i go into action to help. i find being helpful fun. if you mean am i great at parties sitting getting drunk, correct not interested. but your also wrong > I am interested in creating more social events that get people actively caring & helping each other, interacting & having fun together. plus have it bring more awareness & income to organizations & businesses which means more social fun & even more jobs. so what you doing this weekend?

I was either going to cure cancer, solve the world hunger crisis,or just watch TV but I haven't decided yet. I am not a drinker and every party does not need to involve alcohol.

OK, my plans are set for the weekend. Stumphumper and I are going to club some baby seals, burn plastic in my back yard, poach some endangered species, and maybe if there is time left transfer money to some overseas accounts to avoid taxes.

All laughter aside, if it were farmers raising chickens, I know I would be happy with health and safety of all..but the way some of the residents in town that live like filthy slobs that would raise chickens, how do you think bird flu started? These people would not get the shots and take the precautions necessary, and we ALL will (not might) will suffer. Common sense in Fairmont has flown the coop.

I teach all of my birds to cough into their wings to prevent the spread of disease.
