A chicken was seen clambering on the rocks around 84th street inside Riverside Park on Monday morning. The chicken did not appear to be with an owner, according to our tipster Matthieu Garcia, who was walking his dog when he saw it.
That would make it a free-range chicken.
Garcia took the photos above and below. Asked if the chicken was in fact his chicken (we were just making sure this wasn’t a publicity stunt of some sort), Garcia told us “No, I do not have any affiliation with this chicken.”
The chicken appeared to be intrigued by the dogs.
“She seemed very calm and just watched from the rocks,” Garcia wrote.
Update: Garcia spotted the same chicken on Tuesday morning too.
