Over the weekend- to catch a rooster

This past weekend was filled with lots of family time with both sets of grandparents.

And brainstorming on how to get this guy to leave my in-laws front yard!

Ideas included using an old cat carrier and enticing the rooster with food. My mother in law thought we should leave a trail of food to the nearby woods. My brother in law had a blanket at the ready to try to catch the rooster.

I called my parents to ask for advice. First thing my dad says is " Don't feed him. He'll never leave" Yeah. Too late on that!

The rooster is still there as of today. The dogs are going nuts. We think he came from a neighbors' farm, but no one can get a hold of them.

The funniest part of this is that my mother in law loves roosters! Her house has rooster decor throughout. The little guy must have figured he was welcomed!


  1. BAH! This is too funny. Although I would be freaking out because rooster = bird. And just no.

    Side story: When I was eating lunch in Blue Ridge this weekend, I heard a Rooster crowing in the middle of "downtown." I asked my mom about it and she said the city had adopted the thing and it just roams around doing as it pleases. There are even rooster crossing signs.

  2. hahaha! the rooster is probably driving them nuts early in the morning!
