Chicken In Pear Tree Has Company

Posted December 15, 2004 2:33 a.m. EST

— Another bird has joined the chicken in a Bradford pear tree in the town of Four Oaks.

Last month, WRAL reported about the chicken, Pearl, who has been in the tree for months.

Now Pearl has a boyfriend, a rooster named Earl. WRAL found Pearl and Earl today stretching their chicken legs on the ground, but they spend most of their time in the tree.

Who knows -- maybe one day soon there will be more than a pair of birds in that pear tree.
