Red Fiery Cock

Quite soon (on the 28th of January 2017) the impish monkey, with a funny face, will wave its paw to us and we will appear under dominion of the next symbol of Chinese calendar. The principal of the next year, the Red Fiery Cock, is an elegant bird that is proud of its magnificent looks.         

A bright, colourful, gorgeous plumage of Galliformes makes them just scrumptious. Galliformes include among 250 species that vary greatly in their lifestyle. Some species make their nest on the ground, some make their nests. The smallest species weigh 45 grams (dwarf quail), the biggest weigh  from 10 to 12 kilos (wild turkey). Representatives of several orders cannot stay in the air for a long time though they can fly quite fast; their nestlings quit nests during first days of their lives.

The common ancestor of galliformes,  jungle fowl, inhabits forests of India from Kashmir to Cochin-China. Descendants of jungle fowl are the most numerous among the present domestic fowl.

         

"Cock a doodle doo!" - this renowned stentorian cry is harbinger of the dawn and announcement of much-waited -for day, full of pleasant care and experiences. From one side, this is a reminder that the territory is under his supervision, from the other side it calls the fosterlings into a new day that is full of surprizing news.        

 We hope that this wonderful symbol will help us lead a bright and multi-coloured life on the new year.
