Chicken at the corner

Photo: Two Chicks
By Cindy Bennett

We have new Cache chickens and other characters just over the border, in Silver Lake (Sunset Blvd. near Coronado). Also, the new-ish chickens (circa Valentine's Day is my guess) on Mohawk on the brick wall of The Kids Are Alright, a clothing and gifts boutique. Chix joyous but a bit schmaltzy, and we love them anyway.

Speaking of chix, meanwhile, a reader named Chuck was able to provide some more information -- though no address -- on the chicken of Whitmore:

I live right near the intersection of Whitmore and Allesandro and that chicken you mention seems to be the godfather of the neighborhood. I've lived here five months and still don't know who owns it. But [she] does just wander about quite contentedly, seemingly very pleased with herself.

And, speaking of chickens, I heard a rooster crowing in the middle of the day yesterday afternoon, while I sat at my dining room table, reading (good Echo Park rooster that he was he thought 2 pm was dawn). A couple of years ago, I wouldn't have noticed. But it's no longer a sound I take for granted.
