Subject: Jimmy the Chicken

Zebediah was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers, called pullets, and eight or ten roosters, whose job was to assure that the eggs were fertile. Zeb kept records, and any rooster that didn't perform well went into the

soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of Zeb's time; so, Zeb got a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.

Each bell had a different tone so that Zeb could tell, from a

distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

Zeb's favorite rooster was old Jimmy. A very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning, Zeb noticed that Jimmy's bell had not rung at all!! Zeb went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells a-ringing! The pullets,hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

BUT, to Zeb's amazement, Jimmy had his bell in his beak, so it

couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. Zeb was so proud of Jimmy that he entered him in the county fair. Jimmy was an overnight sensation.

The judges not only awarded him the No Bell Piece Prize but

also the Pulletsurprise!!

Hope you enjoy.....

Sounds just like the male population, always finding sneaky ways to catch a female.
