When asked by an interviewer if everyone should have a pet rooster, Brian McGrory, the author of this book, admitted that had he known better, he might have preferred a hen. That would have been a great loss for the readers of this rousing account of one man's fight for household dominance with a large cockle-a-doodle-do competitor named Buddy. This uphill battle for pecking-order alpha status might have gone awry had it not been for the wisdom shared by Brian's veterinarian wife Pam and a few hard-learned lessons. Buddy tells an amusing, ultimately touching story, but along the way, it teaches much about how species (including ours) relate in close quarters.
