    obviously if they are roosting in your neighbors trees might pay to ask them first
    What is a 4x2 but a stick by another name Mikee. You have been ripping off my idea all this time.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    They can be pricks to catch. I remember resorting to the A5 as a kid to get a rooster that we couldn’t get hold of. Was beating the crap out of the bantam roosters, so he got sorted out.

    Probably not ideal for the backyard...

    My grandad used to work in a brewery and used to take the used grain home for chook food, he said it used to make the roosters fight all the time. Must have been drunk

    Where do you get decent Scotch for $25? I'd be using a glass of that for the chooks and then going and buying some good Scotch.

    [Or soak a heap of grain in whisky etc, then feed it out. They get drunk as skunks and are easy pickings.[/QUOTE]
    That's an old poachers trick that they used to catch pheasants.

    Are you sure they are chickens? As pointed out earlier, they roost at night so wont be active.
