But not a single rooster. Just tell them to come and get the rest, keeping such a small flock is such a bother; having to buy feed and watering them for the benefit of my unknown visitor. “But if they can’t aceoi%-. modate me to this ext9^, tt^. them to at least come apd.taite' a conple of the nosters. > auN||81f>1onesoaio.t and .

And this to said despite Dr. Taylor’s invitation for the thieves to come back and make a clearance of the hen house.
