It is 5am as I sit here writing this and there are at least three roosters crowing. They have been doing this all night long. The idea that roosters make good alarm clocks because they crow at dawn is a "city-folk" concept. Certainly, on the island of Tortola is isn't true. They seem to call out out 24/7.
This particular rooster was part of a band of chickens we encountered on our explorations yesterday morning. There were other roosters in this group so I can't say if this one ruled the roost. Since chickens like this are free range and appear to belong to no one, I don't know what the island culture is about turning them into food. Deb had chicken on her salad yesterday and it makes me wonder. . . .
