I raised this roost­er to catch wild roost­ers in the for­est. I have a trap, I bring it to the for­est then put the roost­er in it. The roost­er crows then the wild roost­ers run to the trap. He crows loud­ly. He is also very good at fight­ing” Hac tells us as she stands next to her roost­er, cradling him gen­tly in her hands.

I catch the roost­ers and sell them. We don’t eat our rooster.”
