The Iconic Key West Chicken

Key West chickens have taken on iconic stature.  They roam relatively unmolested all over the island.  Generally, we love our chickens.  However, if a lovesick rooster ever takes up residence near you, especially in the winter when all our windows are open, you can quickly fall out of love.  I spent a good part of one winter suffering with a rooster crowing earlier and earlier (and earlier means around 2:00 in the morning!).  The result was serious sleep deprivation.  But they sure are beautiful, all different and silly as, well, a chicken!
