Is it possible for a player to always choose the starting player option (rooster tile and 1 food) as his first action and hence stay starting player the whole game?

Though this may not make sense, my daughter did this and my son got mad...

Sure, it's allowed, but it effectively makes the second player starting player since they then get their first choice of the available actions. The Starting Player action, in and of itself, is not a powerful action. Its only real power is in setting you up for your choice next round. If you fail to make that choice (by choosing Starting Player again), you've wasted it.
