Flash forward to this morning. The second-generation fancy-chicken mural is gone from the exterior side wall of Chango, whitewashed away, along with the remnants of Aaron Donovan's original chicken mural. The lady gas station that Magic Gas had become is no longer a lady gas station -- the purple and mustard colors and lacy italics replaced by a proto-masculine, Fast & Furious red-black-and-white color scheme, and there's a new name: EchoFuels.

Meanwhile, Chango has changed hands; it has new owners. And even the name "Chango" has lost half its "O."

Across the street, construction is moving at a brisk, waste-not-one second pace, in a sudden race to complete the condo development at what used to be an open lot, where an urban farm once was located.

So much change-o at Chicken Corner.

As for the mural, Chicken Corner the blogger is waiting for confirmation that Aaron Donovan will be painting a new mural there. That's what we hear. Chickens? Will he paint chickens? In bondage? We'll soon see.
