I made a home visit recently in the country.
I noticed a large rooster, sitting out front, that gave me the "once over" as I walked by, but just stayed put.
The yard was surrounded by a very low fence.
I asked the owner, Mrs. T., if the rooster had ever tried to "escape."
Mrs. T.: He ventured off once, about two years ago, and got the crap beat out of him by one of the neighbors roosters. He came back all bloodied up. He hasn't left the yard since.
