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 houseâ€™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 â€” Why is the rooster there, and why hasnâ€™t this chicken crossed the road?
