A farmer owned 25 young hens and one old cock . He felt that the old cock could no longer handle his task efficiently, the farmer decided to buy a young cock from the market.
When he brought the young cock home, the old cock approached it.
Old cock: Welcome to join me, we will work together towards productivity.
Young cock: What do you mean? As far as I know, you are too old and should be retired.
Old cock : Young boy, there are 25 hens here, can’t I help you with some?
Young cock: No!! Not even one, all of them will be mine.
Old cock: In this case, I shall challenge you to a competition. If I win you shall allow me to have one hen, if I lose you will have them all.
Young cock: OK. What kind of competition?
Old cock: 50 meters run. From here to that tree. But due to my age, I hope you allow me to start off the first 10 meters.
Young cock: No problem! We will compete tomorrow morning.
In the morning the young cock allows the old cock to start off and when the old cock crosses the 10 meters mark the Young cock chases him with all his might. Soon enough, he is behind the old cock’s back in a matter of seconds.
Suddenly…”BANG”!!! Before he could overtake the old cock, he was shot dead by the farmer who cursed, “Hell, I got to change my supplier, looks like it’s the fifth gay cock I bought this week!”
