Cockieleerie — Animals in Scots #4

Hi all 😁 Today’s Animal in Scots is Cockieleerie — Cock.

Cockieleerie by Jez Braithwaite
Cockieleerie — Cock

All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.

Hae a guid day 😁
