Mrs Weasley crows

Turns out the chicken we have been calling Mrs Weasley all this time is a cockerel. For those who aren't up on their chicken lingo, cockerel is a young male past the chick stage but not yet adult rooster. 

This morning while feeding the cats I heard s crow from the coop. Since two of the chickens have larger combs, I was thinking it could've either. But I let them out and heard it again from none other than Mrs (ahem, Mr) Weasley. 

Makes sense. He is by far the largest and his legs are twice as thick as anyone else's. 

Now we'll probably need to figure out how to butcher him and do that in the next month or so. Unless we decide to keep a Cock?  I don't know....
