Rooster Characteristics

Roosters are hard-working, talented and capable, but that doesn't mean they don't have a sense of adventure! You will often find roosters travelling the world to seek new experiences, and they will be the ones who get up early to greet the sun, too. Roosters are quite self-sufficient and self-confident and are likely to start trends; they certainly don't need to rely on others for their opinions and are happy to stick their neck out if necessary. They like to dress up!
