The Partridge and the Cocks

A farmer found a Partridge in his fields and took it home. At home, he cut the wings of the Partridge and left him to live in the little yard where he kept his fighting Cocks.

The Cocks were not very friendly animals. At first, they did not talk to the Partridge, at all.

Then, after some days, they started being rude to him.

They said, “What an ugly fellow you are! You have no wings and cannot fly. We do not understand why the farmer has kept a useless bird like you with great birds like us!”

The Partridge was very sad.

One day, the farmer went to the market with his family. The birds were left alone at home. Suddenly, a Fox came and jumped on the two Cocks. He held both the Cocks under his paws.

Just then, the Partridge jumped on his back and pecked him, sharply. The Fox let go of the two Cocks and was about to hurt the Partridge. However, the farmer returned. He hit the Fox with a stick. Thus, the Fox ran away.

The Cocks thanked the Partridge for saving their lives. Since then, they became good friends.

A kind heart will help you make friends, easily.
