ALECTRYON by ironheartram ALECTRYON by ironheartram
In Greek mythology, a youth changed by Ares into a rooster. Alectryon was a Greek youth. One night, while "sleeping" with Aphrodite, Ares stationed Alectryon by the bedroom door to warn them about the coming of the sun (Helios); however, Alectryon fell asleep, and Helios walked in on the couple. Ares was so enraged that he turned Alectryon into a rooster, who must forever announce the approach of the sun in the morning.

And, from out a neighboring farmyard,
Loud the cock Alectryon crowed.

He's beautiful! I wouldn't mind having him around to wake me up in the morning. :)
