A Look Inside the Pea-Sized Brain of Tater Puff, the Speckled Sussex Rooster
Hop, hop, peck, peck. Dum, dum, da-dum... Brup, brup! Worm! Bug, bug, bug, grass... Yum! Brup-brup!
Peck, peck... Girls, girls, girls! Food! Eat! Brup, brup, brup, chir! Always lookin' out for the ladies, that me, what!
Ah, here... That feed-lady dug some dirt here in the flower bed! Girls, girls, girls! Ahhhh... Nice soft dirt! Dust bath, girls, girls, girls! Keeps the mites away, I say, what! Brup, brup, brup! Roll and dig!
Girls, girls, girls, brup, brup!
Why, that little whipper-snapper silkie rooster thinks he has something on me! I'll show him!
Hop, hop, peck, peck. Oh, better check for bugs pestering the feed-lady's potted plants here, what! Always on duty, that's me! Dig deeper! Brup!
Girls, girls, girls!
Maybe it said "Tater Puffs" on the box I came in, but I'm no softy, no sir, what what! Brup, craaaw, brup, brup!
Oh, I say, what time! Yeees, yes, the feed lady will be laying down for a rest now, what! Better go let her know I'm always on duty! She's safe with me, what! I'll just hop, hop, hop onto these steps here, not too high for me, what!
Always on duty! Taking care of the ladies!
Heh, yes, what. Make sure she knows. I'm here! All's well, what!
Brup, brup! What's this! The boy! RUUUUN! He has a weapon! Brup! Craaaw!
Best to stay away from him. Back to work, what! Here... I'll try this porch, what! Make sure the feed-lady knows I'm still here and the farm is safe while she sleeps!
Brup, brup! Girls, girls, girls...
