The term Rookery.....was it used "in the olden days" the same way we use the word "hatchery"? I ask because the man im buying my Sears Roebuck incubator from said that his wife used this incubator in her rookery and I was famliar with the term but wasnt sure exactly what he meant by it. So I just now remembered the word and searched for the meaning and it means mainly a nesting or breeding ground for sea animals. Now, I may be wrong but I highly doubt his wife hatched sea birds lol So just cuirous if that word was used the same way we use hatchery? Thanks!
