The rooster is one of the 12 zodiac signs. If you are a rooster you probably dress very well and like to strut your stuff just like the crowing rooster.

  1. I love him! The colors are splendid and he has a kind look in his eye, an unappreciated side of a strong, often ferocious person. A friend tells me a story of when she was farm-sitting: an older, ailing rooster died. My friend laid his body out on the back porch, near the hen-house, to make sure he was conclusively dead. He was, and for the couple of days his body lay “in state,” one particular hen would come, sit by the body for hours, fussing over it, clucking, and seemed to be holding vigil by him until my friend finally had to remove his body. One of his ladies loved him best. I’ve always thought differently about roosters after hearing this. Yours is a magnificent fellow!

    • Wonderful story. I will always remember this when I think of a rooster. They are such ladies’ men. Doesn’t fit in too well with the modern human female.

  2. Love your rooster – what an eye he has on things – and also Camilla’s wonderful story.

  3. This is nice, I’m looking at the chicken’s head as a morning mountain! 🙂

  4. He’s gorgeous!!! Love Roosters!!! ~Sophia

  5. He’s gorgeous, Gretchen.
