So, No Rooster Huh?

Most of you know that OldGal and I live in the country, but something happened yesterday that made me wonder what would happen if we were in a community with a "no rooster" ordinance. A neighbor, who lives almost a quarter-mile away stopped by to purchase eggs. He commented that he could hear our "rooster" every morning around sunrise. Not complaining, just making conversation.

Now this confused me for a moment since we don't have a rooster until I remembered that he's a transplanted city fella, and after a short discussion we determined that what he was hearing was Sunsinger, our Khaki Campbell duck. Not only is Sunsinger not a rooster, she's not even a drake! She's just the girl who has taken over the job of rooster in the mornings. She "quacks" the sun up, and does so loudly! That's how she earned her name.

That begs the question, "What would happen if we lived in the city and they came out and told us we had to get rid of our rooster?" Food for thought.

Easy. You would take them to the back yard and show them that you had no rooster.

Assuming that they knew what a rooster looks like. They might think they were looking for something like this:



After all, my neighbor thought my duck sounded like a rooster crowing. Of course what would be really fun is to tell them to bring an expert to point out the rooster, and watching them get laughed right off the place.
