This lucky rooster was given extra helpings of some squirmy worms ahead of the Lunar New Year celebrations.

It will soon be the Year of the Rooster after all.

Those born during the Year of the Rooster are believed to be resourceful, hardworking and honest.

But for some, the rooster represents a chance to slow down.

Tourist Wang Jian said, "This rooster brings me back to nature. I hope this year our lives slow down a bit and return to a more natural pace."

The rooster is the tenth sign in the Chinese zodiac and the Lunar New Year begins January 28.
