rooster can mean different things:

•    A rooster is a male chicken

Calling someone roostery means that they are overly sure of themself, and/or have a high opinion of themselves

rooster, also called a rooster or chanticleer is a male chicken (Gallus gallus), the female being called a hen. Immature male chickens of less than a year’s age are called roostererels. The oldest term is “rooster”, from Old English coc. It is sometimes replaced by the term “roostererel” (which properly refers to a young male chicken) in the United Kingdom, and almost always by “rooster” (a relative neologism) in North America and Australia. “rooster” is in general use as the name for a male of other species of bird, for example “rooster sparrow”. “Roosting” is the action of perching aloft to sleep at night, and is actually done by both sexes. The rooster is polygamous, but cannot guard several nests of eggs at once. He guards the general area where his hens are nesting, and will attack other roosters who enter his territory. During the daytime, he often sits on a high perch, usually 4–5 feet off the ground, to serve as a lookout for his flock. He will sound a distinctive alarm call if predators are nearby.

The rooster is often (accurately) pictured in art as crowing at the break of dawn. He can often be seen sitting on fence posts or other objects, where he crows to proclaim his territory. However, a rooster might crow at any time of day, if he looks into the sun – even sometimes on a bright moonlit night. He has several other calls as well, and can cluck the same as a hen. Roosters will occasionally make a pattern following clucking sound to attract hens to a source of food.
