2017 is the Year of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac, and the Happy Lantern Festival travel guide explains that:
Rooster is the tenth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029
Rooster is almost the epitome of fidelity and punctuality. For ancestors who had no alarm clocks, the crowing was significant, as it could awaken people to get up and start to work. In Chinese culture, another symbolic meaning of chicken carries is exorcising evil spirits.
People born in the Year of Rooster according to Chinese zodiac have many excellent characteristics, such as being honest, bright, communicative and ambitious. Most of them are born pretty or handsome, and prefer to dress up. In daily life, they seldom rely on others. However, they might be enthusiastic about something quickly, but soon be impassive. Thus, they need to have enough faiths and patience to insist on one thing.
Our baby rooster, Fonzi (you know…”chicks dig him”- lol) out and about in the yard earlier…he’s grown quite tall and loves the ladies…he’s also quite the runner and can chase them down with no issue. At the moment though, he seems to have found his voice and has been in a crowing contest with our old rooster Normie for a good week though..
He is such a pretty boy :)
