The chicken caper in El Centro continues.

For several months there have been reports of chickens in the 1200 block of Pepper Avenue in El Centro. El Centro Animal Control officers and Police officers have been trying to track down exactly where the chickens roost. From time-to-time officers are able to spot the fowl in the neighborhood but, so far, have not pinpointed their home. On Wednesday morning, an Animal Control Officer patrolled the area on foot and located evidence of the presence of chickens but couldn't locate the birds. Late Wednesday afternoon the officer rechecked the neighborhood to try and locate the roost but was unsuccessful. The chickens are in a residential neighborhood and that violates city ordinances. The search for the feathered law breakers continues.
