All was well with the bird they called Cocky-Doodle-Do, or Chicky, or Henry, until last month when someone complained that he was pecking at kids at the bus stop. The county picked him up and brought him to the animal shelter, but his special friend on Edgar Court claimed him and brought him back to the neighborhood.
The wording of the city ordinance governing chickens makes it unclear how to deal with a rooster no one owns, so the mayor appointed a "rooster committee" to review the situation. They'll meet May 25 and come up with a recommendation June 1.
Can we get those kids and parents together and make friends with Cocky and let the local officials get back to work?
