The rooster crows provide constant background noise at Adan Gomez' home in Salinas.
Gomez, who lives on Russell Road with his wife and children, has many animals. Aside from a handful or more standard pets, like dogs and horses—which they ride as part of the Salinas Valley Charro Groups—the family also has a pair of parrots, a flock of white doves, goats and dozens of roosters and hens, which cluck and cackle consistently.
Gomez says his wife loves the fresh eggs for cooking.
