CORONA DEL MAR (CBS) — A Corona del Mar man is saying goodbye to six pet chickens this weekend after losing his fight with city hall.
Michael Resk held a two day send-off for the chickens, known as “The Goldenrod 6.”
“I haven’t really told them that they are leaving quite yet,” Resk told KNX 1070’s Mike Landa earlier Saturday. “I figure it’s easier if they don’t know… it’s sorta like with children. You don’t always tell them they’re going to the doctor until they are out of the car.”
The hens — Red, Tiny, Whitey, Flatty, Blackie and Blondie — were expected to be picked up about 3 p.m. Saturday and taken by limousine to their new home.
One of Resk’s neighbors reportedly complained about the noise six chickens can make prompting his having to give them up.
Richard Moriarty, owner of Newport Beach Vineyard and Winery, adopted all six.
The chickens became famous after receiving eviction notices from the city.
