i brought the story here. eg
Carolina rooster has either a death wish or a morbid sense of humor.
Employees at the Bluffton, S.C., Chick-fil-A (search) franchise noticed a rooster strutting around inside the restaurant on June 25, reports the Carolina Morning News.
"We let him out, but he keeps hanging around," said manager Carlton Beall.
Beall and his co-workers feed "Little Truett" — named after the fast-food chain's founder, S. Truett Cathy — bread and biscuits, but no chicken.
It wouldn't be right to feed the rooster "his own kind," explained Beall.
Chick-fil-A, pronounced "Chick Fillet," has over 1,000 franchises in 37 states, mostly concentrated in the Southeast. Its motto: "We didn't invent the chicken, just the chicken sandwich."
A firefighter told the franchise's owner, Brett Swanson, that he'd seen the rooster crossing a federal highway to get to the restaurant on the other side the day before his grand debut.
"We thought maybe someone would take him home," Swanson told the newspaper. "He seems friendly."
