A stowaway rooster has made a 320-kilometre roam in West Australia’s north hidden in a caravan, powerful to the shock of the unsuspecting Perth couple who came upon it.
- The rooster travelled extra than 300km in the hatch of a caravan and laid an egg among camping gear
- Staff at the Sandfire Roadhouse say it be no longer the first time the rooster has long gone on an adventure
- The rooster also had to be introduced back 50km to the roadhouse after hitching a budge with unsuspecting travellers three weeks ago
Cheryl Harman opened the hatch of her caravan after a three-and-a-half-hour roam from Sandfire Roadhouse to Broome to find a rooster and a freshly laid egg inside a storage cupboard in their caravan.
“I may hear this squeaking noise and I believed, “Okay what’s that?'” she said.
She said the rooster jumped out of the caravan when she reached her destination and started pecking away happily.
“It is terribly very tame,” Mrs Harman said.
“It actually laid an egg in our tunnel boot.
‘We have renamed it Hitchhiker’
The rooster lives at the Sandfire Roadhouse, a popular discontinue-off point for parents travelling from Karratha to Broome.
Roadhouse workplace manager Dorothy Taylor said it wasn’t the first time the rooster had snuck into a car.
She said the rooster hitchhiked its way to Eighty Mile beach three weeks ago and had to be introduced back 50km to the roadhouse.
“It has started to accept into a few cars and caravans,” Ms Taylor said.
“We have re-named it; it be no longer Salt and Pepper. We have renamed it Hitchhiker.
