There’s an anthropomorphic and misogynistic belief in the backyard chicken community that you can’t be friends with your rooster because it’s “disrespectful” and makes them “weak.”

In reality, roosters are just like hens and want attention, cuddles, treats, to be told they’re pretty, and love. You don’t have to be “alpha male” or “show them who’s boss.” They simply need to be taught manners, just like any other pet, and you have to respect them and their boundaries as well.

Roosters deserve to be loved.
