    I got him and his girlfriend today when I went out of town. It was 20 dollars a pair and they are just adorable!! They didn't have much human interaction so I'm very surprised how friendly they are!! Here is my little rooster.

    I like giving Japanese chickens Japanese names.

    You could name him ねこ (neko). It means "cat" in Japanese. He looks so cute lying there like a kitten taking a nap.

    ときをつける (tokiwotsukeru) means "to crow at the break of dawn." In Japan, roosters are supposed to be saying "こきこっこう!” (kokikokkou!).

    おんどり (ondori) means rooster.
