Rooster becomes downtown icon - Pet’s appearance at Hwy 182 residence drawing conversation across Starkville

August 4, 2014

On the northwest corner of Highway 182 and Montgomery Street, in the yard of a white, two-story house, lives a rooster.

When not in repose, it ambles around the yard, occasionally alighting on the house’s mailbox. No fences stop it from venturing off the property, but it never has. When it does raise its wings, it looks less like an attempt to fly and more like a stretch. Some driving past the house caw at the rooster, but it is largely silent. Others, like Mitchell Wilczynski, drive by and wonder — Why is the rooster there, and why hasn’t this chicken crossed the road?
