Also at Lincoln Park: Unusual bird sighting

Before sunset, we got multiple reports (thanks to Megan for the photo) about that rooster, seen and heard in upper Lincoln Park. Not likely it’s a lost pet, as they’re against city rules. We advised reporting to Seattle Animal Shelter but they’re closed for the holiday.

    “they’re against city rules” LOL … we hear roosters crow every morning and have for years in our neighborhood. I’m guessing he just made a getaway from someone who cares not about city livestock rules.

    I saw a few chickens roaming around near Lowman Beach, maybe 6 months ago!

          There are chickens roaming around in Greenwood too….we know of at least two homes who keep them.      Lucky people. Free fresh eggs!

    Any evidence of fowl play here?

    Unless you want WS to look like Kauai we should round up those roosters. I hear they breed like rabbits.

    This is likely someone dumping a rooster in the park that was supposed to be a hen. About 10% of sexed chicks turn out to be roosters. Owners need to buy from a farm that will take back the roosters, have the patience to re-home, or be willing to butcher and eat it. Very irresponsible owner is making the public deal with it!
