    TEMECULA, California (AP) -- In the end, the elusive chicken that took up residence outside a McDonald's just got too comfortable in its new home.

    Some customers had to wait for their food when the chicken blocked the drive-thru.

    For four months customers tried unsuccessfully to catch the brown hen using bait or bare hands. Last week, the fast fowl was finally captured after it settled in for the night right on top of the drive-through window box.

    A group of employees distracted the bird with bites of hamburger bun and nabbed it.

    Restaurant manager Chona Cauley said the chicken's downfall was that it got a little bit too comfortable around the drive-through.

    "Normally, the chicken sleeps in the bushes," Cauley said.

    The bird won't end up on the menu. It has been sent to live as a pet with other chickens at the home of a restaurant worker.

    Since the chicken arrived, customers often found themselves waiting to order their McNuggets while the bird blocked the drive-through lane
