Cockerels can be good pets, but many are not.  Frequently 'pet' cockerels become human aggressive because they regard their keepers as equals.  Also too many cockerels/roosters in the flock is a prescription for disaster.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.
