    Foghorn Leghorn
    Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.

    Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you and scorn in the one ahead.

    Oh, I’m sorry….I seem to be lost. I was looking for the sane side of town. I’d ask you for directions, but I have a feeling you’ve never been there and I’d be wasting my time.

    Sorry can't do even close to 150........... but:
    rooster - is a Cock/male Chicken - not a breed
    bantam - is a denomination of size ie Small Variety
    Foghorn Leghorn - Is a - I said - Is a Rhode Island Red
    Free-range - Means they have (slightly) more than 1sq ft and "access" to outside ("access" might only mean that there is a single 9" door in the corner of a Barn the size of Heathrow)
    Battery - Means they have (slightly) more than 1sq ft - with no access out of thier cage)
    Corn-fed - Means that a certain %age of the tulip they feed them might be something like "corn"

    I have Scots Dumpy's and "Laying hybrids" - They were "rescued" from Batteries when thier "Commercial Value" fell ie They couldn't keep laying an egg every single day without becoming ill even after they pumped Anti-Bios and other tulip into them.....

    The Scots Dumpy's look a bit like Marans but thier legs are a bit thicker and thier eggs are pale (as opposed to Marans who lay very dark eggs)

    Do you mean the shells are pale or dark? As opposed to the yokes?
