    Every morning on my way to work I stop at a Chevron station right by our house to get my diet coke (I don't drink coffee). There is a feed store right across the street and for the last 5 or 6 days I have heard a rooster crowing at the feed store in a pen that is way to small for even a small chicken. I told my wife Tuesday night if that rooster was still there when I got home from work Wednesday that I was going to go rescue him from that little cage no matter what they were asking for him. I stopped on my way home and he started crowing as soon as I got out of my car, went in and ask the price and I couldn't believe it when they said $4.00, he is happy now and in with the rest of mt chickens.
