|Sir Dudley-keeping watch|
|Marans hen and chick|
I'm sure you know (if you have any experience with old married folks at all) that the argument did not end there. NO WAY JOSE! Every day, the DW would say to the DH, "I really do think you're hen is a rooster." And everyday the DH would reply, "I will believe it when she does something roostery." ROOSTERY??? All rightey then.
So the DW waited until the darned pullet/cockerel started learning to crow. Then she pulled her DH out into the yard so he could see for himself. And the DH said, "but honey, some hens crow. I still think it's a hen."
