We were in Key West for a few days of our trip to Florida. If you've ever been there, you've seen the chickens and roosters everywhere. The story we were told is that cock fighting used to be legal, but when it was banned the birds were let go to roam the streets at will. We were there less than 20 minutes when we saw a chicken crossing the street almost get run over by a tourist on a bicycle. We met someone who complained about hearing roosters crowing in the wee hours, but fortunately we never had to put up with that.
