A male chicken is referred to as a cockerel until it reaches maturity, when it becomes a rooster (US) or a cock (UK). I’m sure you will agree this is a fine specimen, a “Magnificent Cock”.
A rooster will protect his roost of hens, fighting aggressively if necessary. You may also find a cock can wake you in the morning. By crowing loudly. In fact, some cocks can be a bit bothersome, making their presence known throughout the day.
If you prefer a thicker cock, I have this colourway on DK. However, fingering can be a delight and should mean your cock lasts longer. Because it’s 420m/100g compared with 225m.
As you can see from the final picture, I had a lot of fun photographing my cock so I could share the pictures online with strangers. Who love poultry.
It is a superwash treated 4ply sock weight yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 25% nylon for strength and durability. Around 420 metres per 100g skein. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.
This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
