Honey...NOW Do You Believe That My Razor Is Broken? - Rooster - NZ by 


A rooster, also known as a cockerel, or a cock is a male chicken (Gallus gallus) with the female being called a hen. Immature male chickens of less than a year’s age are called cockerels. The oldest term is “cock,” from Old English coc. The term “rooster” originates from the United States, while in the United Kingdom and Ireland the older term “cockerel” is more widely used. In North America, Australia and New Zealand “rooster” (a relative neologism) is almost always used, occasionally cockerel. “Cock” is in general use as the name for a male of other species of bird, for example “Cock sparrow.” “Roosting” is the action of perching aloft to sleep at night, and is done by both sexes. The rooster is polygamous, but cannot guard several nests of eggs at once. He guards the general area where his hens are nesting, and will attack other roosters that enter his territory. During the daytime, he often sits on a high perch, usually 4–5 feet off the ground to serve as a lookout for his flock. He will sound a distinctive alarm call if predators are nearby.
This handsome fellow and I often catch up on my daily walk….

Do You Remember Me?… Rooster

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

  • Thank you for your lovely kind comment Trixi so very much appreciated. I guess it must be, I am not sure what type he is…the farmer who owns them is never there, so I wonder around chatting to them..
