Something to Crow About: Short Stories by Alejandro R. Roces

It was peculiar because no one could tell whether it was a rooster or a hen. My brother claimed it was a rooster. I claimed it was a hen. We almost got whipped because we argued too much.

The whole question began early one morning. Kiko and I were driving the chickens from the cornfield. The corn had just been planted, and the chickens were scratching the seeds out for food.

Suddenly we heard the rapid flapping Alejandro r roces wings. We turned in the direction of the sound and saw two chickens fighting in the far end of the field.

We could not see the birds clearly as they were lunging at each other in a whirlwind of feathers and dust. My brother slowly approached the battling chickens. They were so busy fighting that they did not notice him. When he got near them, he dived and caught one of them by the leg.

It struggled and squawked. Kiko finally held it by both wings and it became still. I ran over where he was and took a good look at the chicken. Look at its face. It has no comb or wattles. Who cares about its comb or wattles? But I still say it is a hen. Did you ever see a hen with spurs on its legs like these?

Or a hen with a tail like this? I tell you it is a hen. Why, look at it. At noon we went to eat lunch. We argued about it on the way home. When we arrived at our house Kiko tied the chicken to a peg. The chicken flapped its wings and then crowed.

Did you hear that? What is the argument about this time? It is a rooster that looks like a hen. Have you ever seen a hen with feathers like that? I have handled fighting cocks since I was a boy, and you cannot tell me that that thing is a rooster.

Soon Mother was crying. She always cried when she argued with Father. That did not mean that he was the wisest, but anything always carried more weight if it is said by a man with gray hair. So my brother untied the chicken and we took it to the chief. Please give us an answer.

Just say yes or no. Is this a rooster? No, that could not be a chicken. I have never seen like that. It must be a bird of some other kind.
