I was poking
around in the
hen house the
other day and
noticed some-
thing. There was
a new regime.
Same chickens.
Different boss.

It goes like this.
The wife wanted
a rooster. She
picked the black
one in the picture.
But he would not
crow. And that
was what she wanted a rooster for. So being the loving husband I am,
I bought her another rooster. The reddish one below.

Of course Mr. Black Rooster put him in his place. Well, for a while. Soon
the new rooster decided to take over. So now Mr. Red rooster was the new

Of course Mr. Red Rooster over looked one little thing. The Scriptures
"Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall."
-Proverbs 16:18 RSV

A fellow gave me some pullets. (He thought they were). One of the
pullets was a rather strange pullet. Really it was a slow developing
rooster. However the other roosters kept it in it's place - until the
other day. It had grown up.

Now Mr. Red Rooster don't crow anymore. That's him cowering up on
the hen's nests eating crow.

Yes, the young half breed below is now king of the roost. The way he has been
running around so cocky lately you know he is real proud of himself. But he
needs to remember one thing. God said,
"For every one who exalts himself will be humbled,
and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
-Luke 14:11 RSV.

So watch out Mr. Rooster. Just like us, you have a day coming.
