"Who's A Pretty Boy"

By TrotterFechan
A rooster, also known as a ****erel or cock, is a male gallinaceous bird, with cockerel being younger and rooster being an adult male chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus). "Roosting" is the action of perching aloft to sleep at day, which is done by both sexes...Mature male chickens less than one year old are called cockerels.....The rooster is polygamous, but cannot guard several nests of eggs at once. He guards the general area where his hens are nesting, and attacks other roosters that enter his territory. During the daytime, a rooster often sits on a high perch, usually 0.9 to 1.5 m (3 to 5 feet) off the ground, to serve as a lookout for his group (hence the term "rooster"). He sounds a distinctive alarm call if predators are nearby and will frequently crow to assert his territory...

Reminds of Karsh's portrait of a disgruntled (later judged "defiant") Churchill in WW 2, taken just after he insisted the PM lose the stoggie he was smoking. But sometimes a **** is just a ****.
