Blocking traffic

Yes, this is what blocked traffic on the road yesterday in my neck of the woods.

Rooster in the lane

To get to our house, we turn off the highway onto a paved lane and travel a short distance before turning onto our unpaved lane.  Yesterday. as I was approaching the unpaved lane I had to stop the car for chickens in the road.  The hens quickly moved out of the way, but this rooster refused to budge.  The land slopes upwards on one side of the lane and downward on the other side, and there was no driving around the miscreant.

One of the children from the house nearby was outside, and he came over and tried to get the rooster to move by kicking at it (in the air), but rightly was afraid to get too near.  I got out of the car to try my hand at shooing the rooster away, but that rooster was having none of it.

As I got back in the car, laughing at the situation, I noticed another car behind me, a rare occurrence as not very many cars come up this road. Getting back out, I walked to the other car, the driver of which (of course) could not see the rooster and was wondering why I was just sitting there.  A passenger in the other vehicle, a young man, got out and he and the neighbor boy were able to get the rooster to move.  And we continued on our way.

Just another day in the North Georgia mountains.

    haha, must have been some yummy bugs on that road. I’ve had to stop many times for wild turkeys crossing the road but not for chickens. Sweet shot!


    1. Thank you! The chickens usually move, but this rooster was a stubborn one!


  3. Why DIDN’T the chicken cross the road?
    Nobody knows….
