(WDTN)  Arby Presley added a new chore to her list recently.  Feeding the chickens.

The only problem is she isn't in a barn yard, but a front yard.

"This is supposed to be the city limits, it's the outer limits," says neighbor Elizabeth Long.

For decades Presley and her neighbors have watched chickens hunt and peck their way up and down Montgomery Avenue in Fairborn, Ohio.

But recently they say the chickens aren't just crossing the road, they're crossing the line.

"It's gotten so out of control because there's so many of them," Presley says.

About 100 chickens are in the neighborhood by some estimates.

Neighbors we talked with say the chickens are destroying their property and their peace.
