Object of His Affection

Is there a "strutter" in your family? We have several in our yard and the speckled rooster is a master at it. At the moment we employ 2 roosters and I suspect at least one of the 4 chicks will be one as well. Hard to tell at this point. One individual does seem to posses all the qualities, even though at 3 months of age, they all appear the same, sex-wise.
What "qualities" are good for a rooster, you might ask...and I will answer with a list:
Wariness, alertness, brassiness, tenderness (with the chicks), stubbornness, bravery, foolhardiness, cleverness and diplomacy. I will let you, dear reader, come to your own conclusion about comparing those traits to your significant other.... LOL...and why each of those qualities are valuable
This particular rooster lives in Morgan Mill and has gathered all the hens that have survived the coyotes and wayward pickup trucks and kids with sling shots. I suspect they have him to thank for helping keep them safe for this long....

Psalm 140:4
Keep me safe, LORD, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet.
