Pullet Surprise: Lost Chicken Found in Rockaway Beach

Why did the chicken cross the road? Why, to get on Pacifica Riptide, of course.

"There's a lost chicken in our front yard. It's been around since at least last night. It appears to have some of its back feathers torn out. The feral cats are intimidated by it. Anybody lose a chicken?" (Rockaway Beach news item posted by Peter Loeb @ and forwarded by Alan Wald)

Peter updates us now: "Through NextDoor, I discovered that there are several people in the Rockaway valley who have chickens, but all of them counted their chickens and none were missing. I contacted one of the chicken-keepers, and she and her neighbors came down to catch the chicken. They called themselves the Chicken Whisperers. The chicken went to a good chicken foster home, but we never did find the owner of a lost chicken. If anybody is still missing a chicken, I know where it is."
