This was my grandparents rooster when they lived there. Someone gave it to them! They couldn’t keep it caged so it wandered everywhere. They were afraid to say it was theirs because of what violations they might’ve been violating, but it didn’t matter because everyone loved it. It would’ve been nice if my grandparents name were on the statue or the origin of Roscoe had come back to my grandparents. They loved the rooster and it seemed like their neighborhood did too.
