little red rooster

Little red rooster. Wasn’t there a song by the band The Rolling Stones by that name? This rooster is part of a flock of roosters and chickens that the next door neighbors have. What I don’t understand is why there is a leash tied to the roosters leg keeping him from wandering around the yard. Any ideas? It is a pretty bird though and very colorful. Aren’t the tail feathers nice? Sort of like being on a farm. A Green Acres farm of television fame that is. Lew

The red blends in well with the black and white tail. The lease idea is a bit different. As long as the chicken isn't upset with the idea of being tied. I guess no harm done.

One good thing is that the chickens being tied up keeps them out of our yard. Years ago when chickens ran loose they would come over in this yard and crow at 4:30 am when I was asleep and had to get up at 6 am for work. Sometimes they would get right outside of my bedroom window and crow as loud as they could. Well I complained to everyone but nobody would lay claim to those chickens. Finally one neighbor who rented two houses down from me started having bar b cues every evening and thats when the chickens started to disappear. Finally they were all gone. Now they have started with more chickens. So keeping them tied up is a good thing for us.
