Here's a different sort of rooster who hales from the same town as the last pictured and is even more handsome. These pictures were taken some fifteen or sixteen years ago and can no longer embarrass the subject (though the hopeful reader is hereby warned to make no false assumptions regarding the sexuality of the young man on display: he has never permitted himself any sort of sexual contact with another male, and most likely never will.)
The first of these images was taken in Mexico where I first met him. The second was shot here in San Francisco.
As you can see there is much to be said for spreading one's wings. It certainly brought considerable joy to the heart of this observer to witness such things.
