A farmer has a local fowl which hatches twenty out of twenty eggs. The farmer says the poor fowl performs far below expectation, adding that a foreign guinea fowl will do better.
The farmer is angry, sad and disappointed probably because the fowl is a local one with tribal marks ÔÇô made in Nigeria. Of what use is a Nigeria born fowl which hatches twenty out of tweny eggs. It must hatch hundred out of hundred - period
This farmer always thinks he is smart and thoughtful. He passionately believes nothing good can come out of anything or anyone born or made in Nigeria. Instead of counting his blessings, his dislike for anything in his own image thirsts the continuous fruitless search for something else.
As far as the farmer is concerned, if a Nigerian born fowl can hatch twenty out of twenty eggs, then a foreign born anything or anyone must be able to hatch hundred out of hundred eggs. That is what he wants. To him, this is the practical and visionary approach to solving the critical problem at hand
A quick decision must be made. And so the fowl is sold. Obviously the farmer's hatred for Nigerian born anything or anyone affects its conclusion.
Unknowing to his relatives, friends and well-wishers, the farmer had made a secret vow never again to keep anything Nigerian born, since that "good-for-nothing" fowl could not hatch hundred out of hundred.
Perhaps the farmer could have tarried a little; it could have bought another Nigerian fowl. But he is simply tired of Nigeria things. He must go abroad to find his desired "bride" guinea fowl to be proud of ÔÇô the one that will hatch hundred out of hundred eggs.
And so the farmer purchases a guinea fowl probably because of its bare head and neck, sleek body, smooth dark feathers dotted with white and short tail. Or perhaps it may be because guinea fowls are known to have been domesticated by the ancient Greeks and Romans. The farmer simply likes anything foreign ÔÇô especially ÔÇô western things.
To this farmer, anything foreign is better than anything local. But unfortunately for this farmer guinea fowls naturally don't hatch as much as fowl irrespective of where they come from. To cut the story short, the guinea fowl hatches one out of two eggs.
