Roosters symbolize farm life as they are a farmer's natural alarm clock. The rooster breeds with the hens, which then creates eggs and new generations of chickens.
Therefore, roosters provide a source of life and are the icon of the farm.
They are often used as symbols to represent farms and farm life because of these attributes, images of roosters can be used to portray farming, country life, nature, natural foods and many other farm related ideas. The sound of the rooster is what makes you aware that you are waking up on a farm and a farm with a rooster makes farm life complete.|

Rooster is the male version of the hen, which is a female. Rooster is most commonly called a cock. A rooster normally is seen sitting on the fence posts or other spaces to claim its area of supremacy.
It normally guards an area where his hens nest and will not shy to attack if any other cock comes in his territory. But a rooster although is polygamous, will not guard too many nests at a time. The crowing of a rooster can be symbolized the break of dawn. But some roosters tend to crow almost constantly and this depends on its breed. |
He has several other calls as well, and can cluck, similar to the hen. Roosters will occasionally make a patterned series of clucks to attract hens to a source of food, the same way a mother hen does for her chicks.
Did you know that :
*Rooster is the symbol of France ?
*Basically, there are two kinds of roosters :
-Light rooster for the production of eggs : Males can weigh up to 2.5kg and 2kg females. Female are great layers, hardy and early, that is, they quickly become covered with feathers and reach sexual maturity very early (5 months). Given their light weight they are well adapted for flight.
-Heavy rooster to produce meat : They grow quickly, are massive and heavy, the cock may weigh 5.5 kg and 4 kg for the hen. They reach maturity very late (8 months) These races are not worn on the flight. Since they were selected for meat production, chickens are not suitable for egg production (however they are able to hatch).
*How many female for one rooster ?
If you want to raise poultry for eggs, a rooster is not needed for spawning. If you want to raise poultry for breeding or for exhibition or even for the flesh so you need a rooster to fertilize the eggs (one rooster for 3 to 5 hens)
In fact the hen lays eggs almost every day, such as women produce ovule once a month. But the eggs (like ovules) are not fertilized every time. So you can have eggs with only hens
