My uncle was in the fertilized egg business when I was young. He had several
hundred young layers, called pullets, and 8 or 10 roosters whose job was to
fertilize the eggs.
My uncle kept records and any rooster or pullet that didn't perform well
went into the pot and was replaced. Now this took an awful lot of time. So
my uncle saw a set of eight tiny bells that each rang a different tone he
promptly bought them.
He glued a piece of foam rubber to each clapper shaft so the bell wouldn't
ring except when violently shaken. He hung a bell on each rooster's neck
and went and mixed a Mint Julep. Now he could sit on the porch and sip while
filling out an efficiency report on the roosters by listening to the
different tones of the bells and marking down each encounter.
My uncle's favorite rooster was old Brewster. A very fine specimen he was
and his bell did not ring all morning. Uncle went to investigate.
Several roosters were chasing pullets, bells a-ringing.Brewster had his bell
in his beak so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and
walk on to the next one.
Uncle was so proud of Brewster he entered him in the county fair. Brewster
was an overnight sensation.
They not only awarded him the No Bell Prize but also the Pullet Sur-Prize.
