DURANGO (AP) — A person in a chicken costume ruffled the feathers of Durango's city council as its members discussed rules for backyard fowl.
At a council meeting Tuesday, someone in a chicken costume quietly entered the council chambers just as the mayor was discussing a recently-passed backyard hen ordinance.
The costumed chicken took a few turns, flapped its arms, then took a seat in the nearly empty gallery.
Several minutes later, the big bird left — without identifying itself — after laying an egg on the floor.
Council members told The Durango Herald they were perplexed by the costumed chicken but found the visit humorous. The council voted 3-2 earlier this month to make it easier to keep backyard chickens.

M1: Every since I turned 80, I've had to go to the 40 pound salt bags for my water softener. I just can't lift the 50 pound ones anymore.
M2: Thats too bad. Every since I turned 85 I haven't been able to carry even the 30 pound bags down the steps to the cellar for the softener. I've started keeping the bag on the porch and using a bucket to carry it down a few pounds at a time.
M3: Heck, I gave up even trying to carry them years ago. My problem is that not only can't I carry them, I can't remember why I find myself standing by the trunk of the car staring at the bag of salt. By the time I go in the house and ask my wife and get back out there, I can't remember again. It works out well - my wife has been putting the salt in for at least the last five years. The last time I remember carrying in the salt was back around my 86th birthday and I'm 91 now.
Me: I'm young enough that I can still carry salt, I can still carry two bags of salt at a time pretty easily. The bad part is that it seems like a new joint aches every morning at this age.
M2: Give it time. In another 30 years you'll be my age and then no one will even think of asking you to carry salt unless you are married to them.
M3: Son, you've just begun to discover one of the things we all know.
Me: What's that?
M1: Getting old is not for the faint of heart or weak of constitution.
Me: Well, it likes like we can get to work.
