You can lead a chicken to cabbage

….but you can’t make them eat it. They are still eyeing it suspiciously.

Chicken in the city

A friendly passerby helps a chicken in need.

Marc Klein was walking his dog, Cocoa, last Wednesday morning in Central Park when he spotted something rustling in the fallen leaves near the park’s entrance at West 97th Street.

It was a feathered creature, but not one of the more commonly seen wild birds in the park. This was a chicken, a handsome, reddish bird that Mr. Klein quickly scooped up because some other dogs nearby seemed a bit too interested in the animal for its safety.

“You don’t really see chickens in Central Park,” said Mr. Klein, 49. “I thought the chicken might be someone’s pet, because it allowed me to get real close. But now I’m holding this bird, and I can’t just go and put it down, because these dogs might eat it.”

So he carried both Cocoa and the chicken home to his high-rise apartment on 97th Street, drawing a stare from his doorman, and another from his wife, Laura.

Unable to immediately reach animal rescue groups, Mr. Klein, an advertising creative director, put the chicken out on his terrace, 16 stories up, and rushed to finish a presentation that was overdue.

Rest in peace, Party Chicken

Sadly, Party Chicken has passed on.

Party-Chicken-House-4

(I think it was her at least; the three Barred Rocks look completely identical.)

We came back from brunch this morning to find her very lethargic and refusing to move, even when we touched her. Normally, like the other chickens, she flips out if you get too close.

She appears to have somehow gorged herself on long grass stems and got them stuck in her crop. It was too late by the time we go her to the vet, sadly, as she died under examination.

RIP, Party Chicken. Bawk on wherever you are.
