A rooster, also known as a cockerel or cock, is a male chicken. Roosters are well-known for their ability to "crow" - loudly, in the morning! They have a bright red "comb" which distinguishes them from the female chicken, or hen.

We've got lots of rooster-themed activities that you can enjoy with the kids... just explore the links below.
