Cockerels and Roosters

If you follow this blog you will have noticed my disdain for roosters that decide to start calling in the early hours of the day. This usually means that they wake you up irrespective of whether or not you want to wake up. Chickens and roosters are to be found wild everywhere on the island but one group of workmen appear to have found a use for these…

..this is hearsay and the basis for this story may be unfounded, but it is credible….

They are building a new hospital in Road Town to replace the existing, somewhat in need, Peebles Hospital. The works are being conducted by mainly migrant construction workers who are put up in accommodation on the island. Well looks like the workers have also found themselves a food supply! There appears to have been a noticeable decrease in the number of chickens and roosters in the immediate vicinity of the new hospital. It is alleged that a number of workers have been asked to pay compensation for having taken the chickens and cooked them!

If only they would live near to my place… now that's a thought!
