Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Spicewood TX Real Estate- Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road??

Spicewood TX Real Estate- Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road??

Spicewood TX Real Estate is unique with houses next to farms. I was leaving a listing appointment in Spicewood TX on Saturday afternoon.  I pulled out of their driveway, turned right, and almost immediately had to slam on my breaks...

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

The old answer is still correct, to get to the other side.  There was no rhyme or reason for these chickens and roosters and hens and GOATS to be out roaming around.  However, they felt as soon as I pulled up, they had this urge to get to the other side.

So, I stopped my car, and did what anyone else would do... I took pictures!  I thought it was just a handful of them, but then when I looked outside my side window, I saw at least 50.

This was a little startling, to say the least.  I wonder if this activity would hinder the sale of the property.  No word as to whether or not I got the listing yet, but I did receive an email saying they were impressed with my marketing.

John, No, the goats baffled me.

Ken, Spicewood is about 30 minutes west of downtown Austin where you're now "Hill Country". Lots of farms and land.

Sonja, The don't belong to the sellers.  They're a neighbor's, but maybe!

I can't help but think they will trace the start of the chicken flu back to Spicewood.
