Key West, FL

 

Get familiar with these guys.

Fancy chickens are everywhere in old town Key West.  They wander the streets, enter bars and shops, have fights in public.  They are protected, so you can’t interfere.

The story goes, that long ago, cockfighting on the island was banned.  Since the birds were no longer making money for their owners, out in the street they went.

And there they remain.
