Cock-a-Doodle-Do to these Great Rooster Decor Ideas. Rooster decor might seem like an unusual choice, but it’s a popular trend that has a proven timelessness and resilience to fading. For decades, roosters have been a popular feature in people’s homes, and for many symbolic and design reasons.

A Rooster, also known as a cockerel, is a male chicken that guards the hens’ nesting area. He sits on a high perch and crows loudly throughout the day but is famous for that early morning cock-a-doodle-doo.

Rooster home decor is a popular choice for religious people across the world. Many of the world’s most-followed religions have a certain and different understanding of the rooster and what they represent.

For example, roosters in fighting stance are depicted in Buddhism as sacred birds. While Hinduism tells that the Hindu war God Karthikeye carries a flag with a picture of a rooster on it. Jews believe that the rooster is a depiction of time, and Christians follow that the rooster is a holy animal, as depicted in the Bible.

The rooster is also a universal symbol of masculinity, which is shown when the rooster performs the “cockerel dance”, a strut that demonstrates masculinity and dominance to the females. For this reason, roosters are a popular figure in traditional homes where the male holds the most senior role in the home and is the breadwinner.

Roosters are also a common feature in American, British, and New Zealand farmhouses. As well as being a show of dominance, the rooster represents the work that the animals carry out on the farm, and the produce that the farm owners can reap from the animals to earn their living.

In a more usual notion, the rooster is a continuation of the farm throughout the house by depicting what is happening outdoors and what is important to the family.
