Roving birds such as roosters are quite common. These roosters are usually male and they look like ostriches with long legs and a short tail. They roost together in flocks and during the day they perch on branches and other points of interest like fences, trees or any structure they can find. The male has a thick crest and it stands upright erect with its wings spread out in a wide front position. The male’s chest is broad and his eyes bulge out as well.

In the middle of spring and summer the fowl flock is very large so it is quite hard to find a good rooster. When the flocks are large, it is easy for a cockfighting enthusiast to find a female rooster. Female roosters have a smaller breast and a tail that are half way down their back. A male cockfighting feather is held between the pinkie of a female and the neck of a male. Cockroaches and other insects are attracted to these roosters because they are blood thirsty and very hungry.
