Signs of Cocks
1A white cock with straight feathers and talons, with red face, nails and crest, and which crows pleasantly at dawn, bestows prosperity on the King, country and horses.
2A cock which has a neck of the shape of barley corn, which has the colour of Jujube fruit, a big head, or looks beautiful with various culours is commendable in fight. So also, one which has the colour of honey or bee brings victory. One that possesses contrary characteristics is not auspicious. One that has an emaciated body, a feeble voice and lame legs is also not good.
3A hen with a gentle and sweet voice, glossy body and beautiful face and eyes, brings for a long-time abundance of wealth, fame, victory and valour to kings.
