Looks like the swan boats of Echo Park Lake have some competition.

A boat shaped like a roasted chicken ( from Vons?) has been spotted floating across the lake recently with some poultry-loving passengers.

We have no idea what this is about. But the sight of an oversized roasted chicken floating on the lake is eye-catching to say the least.

Martin Cox took the photo after returning to Echo Park from an out-of-town trip.

"I knew I was home," he said
