The rooster and the tea kettle

A casino owner invited some friends over to play some blackjack. It was a stormy night, and they all placed their wallets on the table before the power went out. When the power came back on, all of the wallets were gone. 

The casino owner decided to put a rooster in an old rusty tea kettle. He believed that when the thief touched the tea kettle, the rooster would crow. Everybody took their turns and the rooster did not crow. The owner had everybody hold their hands out, and after looking he was able to tell who the thief was. 

How was the casino owner able to identify the thief?
