Collecting the Brides

The piper and drummer.

Only in Al Kosh.... The groom's family comes in with two roosters and lead the procession out to the car carrying these chickens - one for each bride. The grooms got to escort the brides - not the chickens. We were told that this really does only happen in this town, not elsewhere in Iraq. The chickens are symbols of fertility.
