So my neighbors put up a chicken coop on the back side of their property against my apartment property. It has been up for about 2 months now without anything in it.
I was walking the dog during lunch and I happen to see a chicken out from the chicken coop. I don't have the best eyesight, and I really believe what I had just seen. So I take two steps past the curb, still well within my side of the short shrubs that mark the property line, to take a look with the dog, from a distance I hear "hey! Excuse me! Private property!"
Now, I would have shouted back, "This is really cool" or something to that effect but, I am not a loud person, and I'm also battling a cold, so I just walked away.
I would have thought a neighbor would have been nicer than that. If I had started a chicken coop, I would have assumed people would be interested. I would not be shouting across my yard to my neighbors and pushing them away.
In fact, I would want my neighbors to like me and to know what is going on in front of them. That way if anything were to happen they would be more likely to help me out and not ignore me. Now, if I happen so see anything wrong with the coop, I will simply ignore it, since they obviously don't want anything to do with anyone around them.
