well farmer Brown had a good selection of chickens running arounf the yard as farmers are fond of doing,providing a good amount of eggs for Mrs Brown to bake sponges and pavalovas etc with and a good old rooster/cockeral to crow each morning and keep the chickens......
well you know
farmer Brown decided the rooster was getting a bit on in years so decided some young blood was needed.
so this cocky young bird arrives in the yard some weeks later and leaps out of the cage and rushes up to the old rooster looking to have a dustup and become the boss...well the old boy was too cunning for that and said "hang on a minute young fella,I tell you what,how about we settle this by a running race across the yard??,me being a bit older than you how about you give me 10 feet heat start then take off,if you can beat me to the other fence the hens are all yours"....
well of course the young cok accepted this in a flash
the old rooster heads across the yards,stops to crow and then sets off at an almighty pace across yard in front of farmers browns lawn,the young rooster takes off in pursuit...KABOOOM goes a shotgun the young rooster dissapears in a cloud of blood guts n feathers
farmer brown turns to his long suffering wife and says "I dont understand it,thats the third queer rooster weve bought this month"
