McNugget: This rooster rules the roost

 ISSAQUAH– A bantam rooster named McNugget has taken up roost in a downtown Issaquah parking lot.

McNugget first showed up after escaping from a nearby Grange Supply supply store 11 years ago. According to the Seattle Times, he sleeps in a maple tree near the Your Espresso stand and splits his days between the coffee shop, a Staples store and Issaquah Creek.

And McNugget isn’t lacking for attention — customers bring him treats and baristas and a neighbor feed him chicken feed and mealworms.

Roosters are prohibited from residential areas in Issaquah, but there are no laws in the commercially zoned area where McNugget has taken roost.
