    We don't have a rooster so Lame Duck has taken on the job. Every morning, at sunrise she quacks her loudest quack. That made me think of this statue:

    It's in Robert Allerton Park in Illinois, and is titled "The Sun Singer". It faces east and represents a man who sings the sun up every morning. Henceforth Lame Duck will be called,
    Sunsinger.

    Thanks to all who responded. Sunsinger seems happy with her new name. She celebrated by giving us 2 eggs. Of course the jealous cluckers pecked one and ruined it, but still.. progress! [​IMG]

    I knew that I'd heard the native American legend of the The Sun Singer somewhere. I've been searching high-and-low on the internet for it. For those interested in such things this is the best reference I've found:
