    This really happened!

    So these two chickens have been at the local post office for at least a month and yesterday they were standing by the side of the road, good enough to get hit, so I rolled down my window and asked them "Why did the chicken cross the road?" They stood there looking at me like I was stupid..... and then they crossed the road to get to the other side.

    And I just happened to have my camera with me :lol:

    It's called a comb or Cock's Comb as a rooster is refered to as a Cockerell.

    My great grandpa used to raise Red Rock chickens and my mom and dad used to raise chickens to butcher. I gathered eggs at my grandparents farm when I was a kid.

    I love this picture!!! Makes me think of the Country Mouse going to see his City Mouse cousin. I wonder if this rooster had a City cousin?

    Beautiful rooster. Looks like a White Leghorn. Gonna get killed if somebody doesn't move it. Too bad, nice looking.

    I don't know if you all noticed, but the rooster is following a red hen across the street. Her tail end is visible right behind my car. They've been camping out on the lawn at the post office for a while. It's pretty funny because this is in town, no farms around. No houses close by either.

    Here's another look at them from another day.

    They are really gorgeous...Maybe they escaped during transport or something. Perhaps a call to an animal shelter may be in order before they meet with foul play). Love your pics, thanks for the smile!

    Maybe they ran away and eloped!

    Did you know that brown hens lay brown eggs and white hens lay white eggs? My grandma used to have some chickens that layed colored eggs. They would be pale blue, green, pink or orange. Pretty cool, they tasted the same as any other egg. I don't remember which group of chickens layed them though. She had white ones, black and white speckled, a few reds, and some that had multicolored feathers.

    They are beautiful - no wonder my mother loved these growing up on a far during the Depression.

    Thanks for the education........the only time I've seen chickens was
    visiting Key West where they seem to roam at will. Who knew there was such variety!

    The chickens keep trying to teach the armadillos, but as you know, they aren't the quickest of God's creatures! (however they can toddle along at a good clip, so they're fast enough on their feet)

    I have at least one that keeps digging up my yard. I caught him on camera once.

    This one made it across the road!
