Feral chickens that terrorised children and were blamed for an infestation of “cat-sized” rats are back on the streets, Stuff reports. West Auckland’s Titirangi has battled poultry problems for years and in 2019, the Waitākere Local Board paid $25,000 to get rid of more than 200 birds. Years on, a flock of about 30 birds are roosting by Titirangi library, driving residents “mad” with constant crowing.
