    The farmer, with shotgun in hand, surveyed the barnyard looking for the fox; but the fox was nowhere to be found. All the farmer saw were his two prized roosters, Estes and Jude, shaking their tail feathers trying to compose themselves. They both appeared out of breath.

    “Who caused all this commotion in my barnyard?” the farmer demanded. Both roosters started crowing at once, but the farmer hushed them and asked the older rooster to speak first.

    The venerable Estes crowed, “I challenged Jude to a race to prove that, even though I may have a few crow's feet, I'm still head rooster in this barnyard.”

    The farmer turned to Jude for his explanation. “Estes spends half his time gossiping among the hens instead of tending to business.”

    The farmer reflected on the situation before he spoke. “Estes, you must not resent Jude because he cost more than you did or because his feathers glitter more in the sun that yours. And, Jude, just because Estes' crest isn't as red as yours anymore, doesn't mean he's ready for Tyson's Retirement Home for Chickens. It's important to me that you both get along with one another instead of crowing. Estes and Jude, I want you both to cluck now and make up.” SINNETT

    Hi Martha,

    Not an ending to the story, just what I saw this morning as I opened the shutters.

    Fast, young chicken running like mad, heading for our doorstep.

    Number two Cockerell chasing her for all his worth.

    Fast, young chicken makes the safety of the entrance to the barn but looks behind.

    Number two Cockerell catching up.

    Fast, young chicken looking for safety – she spies the barbecue and jumps up on it.

    Number two Cockerell arrives, sees her sanctuary and tries to jump up – fails.

    Fast, young chicken so relieved she leaves large gooey present on barbecue.

    And the moral of the story is – I'm expecting a bumper harvest of Courgettes this year!!!!!!!!!

    I couldn't find the word “gooey” in my dictionary, but I can guess what it means, so your last sentence (or conclusion) wouldn't be so funny, would it? <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Martha,

    Thanks for saving the day, great story.

    And Caroline- I always love to hear your adventures!

    Madeleine, gooey also means sticky it is usually something with a thick consistancy- like bird poop!! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
