The rooster ranks tenth among all the animals in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the year of the rooster are observant, hardworking, resourceful, courageous and talented. They are always active, amusing and popular among the crowd. They like to be the center of attention and look good.
On the flip side they expect others to listen to them while they speak and can become agitated if they do not. Vain and boastful, roosters like to brag about themselves and their accomplishments. They seek unwavering attention of others and often annoy people around them because they are cocksure.
The rooster on the top of the steeple was well liked by many winds but the north-wind disliked it greatly. Once it got a whiff of tandoori-kukkut through winds coming in from Punjab. On inquiry it found out about the aroma and wanted to taste it. Soon his partners brought him the delicacy and the recipe for it. It tasted great and also warmed the chill in its bones.
Since then it plucked off all the cocks on top of different buildings and tandoored them.
The problem of vanishing weathercocks became so acute that they had to be replaced by simple arrows.
