Haven't these guys ever heard of chicken fishing ? Get a Zebco 33, a piece of twine tied in a slip knot, throw out some feed and in no time you are reeling in a chicken


Chasing Chickens
2/10/2006

It's been a problem for years, wild chickens running through High Springs. Folks who live there have been asking the city to get rid of the chickens, and now they may have gotten their wish. But, it comes at a price.

Residents say fifty or sixty chickens had made a habit out of hanging out on the southwest side of town. But, last Wednesday High Springs firefighters were sent out to the area to shoot and kill the stray chickens. Even if it meant going onto people's lawns. Some residents were shocked when they noticed what was going on.

"I heard this pop, pop pop, all of these guns going off and I thought wow, I don't think it's necessary to shoot them ,and I was really upset because I love animals and I don't like to see an harm to any of them," says Joan Lenee.

The shooting didn't last long, and only about eight chickens were killed. A labrador retriever was brought in earlier this week to catch, not kill more of the chickens, though the City Manager believes there may still be more out there.

Chicken Huntin'

[Violent J]
Well, I'm heading down a southern trail, I'm going chicken huntin'
Chopping redneck chicken necks I ain't saying nothing
To the hillbilly stuck my barrel in his eye
Boomshacka boomshacka hair jumps in the sky
Why I never liked chicken pot pie?
Or the chopped chicken on rye?
So tell Mr. Billy Bob I'm a cut his neck up
Slice, poke, chop chop, stab, cut
What can you do with the drunken hillbilly
Cut his fucking eyes out and feed em to his Aunt Milly
Willy Willy chicken neck, chicken hunting gotta love it
Hit him with the twelve gauge bucket, chicken nuggets
Laid out all over the grass
Then his little hound dog will eat em up fast
Last as long as you can my man
Cuz when that chicken head hits the fan, you got
Blood guts fingers and toes [3x]
Sittin front row at the chicken show so...

[Chorus]
Who's going chicken huntin, we's goin' chicken huntin' [3x]
Cut a motherfucking chicken up, right!

[Shaggy 2 Dope]
Let me get a chicken sandwich with manwich
I'm finna wreck on a chicken neck
Chopping up Hilly and Billy Bob Billy
Cuz I chop motherfucking redneck silly
Peeked in his yard and what did I see
I seen a chicken boy fucking a sheep
I say "Mister Mister, what the fuck you trying to do"
Ah, Billy Billy Boo
Barrels in your mouth, bullets to your head
The back of your neck's all over the shed
Boomshacka boom chop chop bang
I'm 2 Dope and it ain't no thang
To cut a chicken, trigger's clickin
Blow off his head but his feet still kickin
Last as long as you can my man
Cuz when that chicken head hits the fan you got
Blood guts fingers and toes [3x]
Sittin front row at the chicken show so...

[Chorus (3x)]

[Violent J]
Went to Kentucky, I got lucky
Met this hot-collared bitch named Bucky
Riding on a chicken, milking a cow
Hittin switches in a drop top low ride tractor plow

[Shaggy 2 Dope]
Redneck fella, moonshine sella
Hang him by his neckbones, chicken bones
Locked in the cellar, yellow belly chicken plucker
You redneck fucker!

[Chorus (3x)]

Yet another twit who doesn't know where her food comes from. I wonder if she'll ever be able to make the connection between the chickens that the firefighters are dispatching and the chickens sold in styrofoam trays at the supermarket.



Also, I have a hard time believing firefighters are shooting chickens. If they're anything like the firefighters I've known, they'd be choking the chicken(s).

Free chickens? There wouldnt be any left in a few weeks. There must to no predators or dogs around that area or hungry people.

Seems like pellet guns might work better in the city.
I realize it may take a few shots and a liberal dose of baseball bats.

I like the dog idea, though.
Mine would have an absolute field day.
