Chicken ecomods at my house

This weekend, I was visited by a new avian friend.

A fancy rooster showed up in my yard. He was a rather curious fellow, and was rather interested in renewable energy.



He was kind enough to point out where I need some welding on my Elec-Trak.



He also was interested in my homemade wire harness on my electric motorcycle. (I will clean up that wiring someday, I swear!)





Perhaps he would make a nice Ecomodder mascot?

Once he started to look like he wanted to roost in my garage for the night, I knew I would have to find out where he came from. I checked with a few neighbors until I found out who he belonged to.

The lady came over and we chased him around the yard for half and hour.



Eventually, we caught him, and he got a ride home.

Actually, this sort of thing seems to happen to me all the time....

A couple years ago, a turkey wondered into my yard.
