Key West Just Us and the Chickens
I was astounded when I saw the first one.
There were many things I was looking forward to seeing in Key West, Florida but...
for heavens sake, we stopped for gas and there was this magnificent rooster crowing like crazy!
It was a gas station not a farm!
As we drove around we saw them everywhere
It was like they owned the city
Even in the dining area of the restaurant where we had lunch!
Just Strolling about, not one but several in different colors. No one paid any attention.
( I would have loved to have gotten a picture of the huge
green iguana that ran across the patio just after I snapped this. It was much bigger than our Tampa area lizards. )
Anyway, I had to be quick as we did much of our touring by car and tour train
(find the hidden hen)
so some are quite obscure.
So many shots were blurred. One I missed completely was of the proverbial chicken crossing the road. He was in the crosswalk, mind you. In a busy intersection, crossing with the light!
The locals love them and often we saw private homes with Chicken features.
Like these gate posts
And this weather vane
They had many for sale in shops
There were much more interesting things to see, of course. But I had to get my chicken post written because it's the one thing that really surprised me about Key West. I was looking for flamingos to be stalking about and instead Key West was overrun with chickens!
