This rooster proudly left his old wooden coop and began to strut his stuff. However, when the tether stopped his advance, he crowed in protest. He lives near Shoubak, a small town of 12,500 people near the northwest corner of Ma’an Governorate bordering Tafilah Governorate. This region is arid and very dry during the summer because it rarely rains from June through August. Then during the winter it can reach temperatures below freezing.
