Love your rooster with attitude! They can say whatever they like as long as its not outside my window at the crack of dawn. The first house we owned, the guy behind us raised chickens. No late mornings in that neighborhood!

Camilla Engman

He looks cock-sure and stubborn (love him).
In swedish they say "kukeliku"

In Spanish the hens say "pio pio pio" and the rooster says "ki kiri ki."

Htc

In Turkish, tavuklar (hens) say "gıt gıt gıdak" and horozlar (roosters) say "ku ku ri ku" :)

My favorite rooster sounds like Mel Gibson and likes to sing loudly!! hahhaaha Have you seen "chicken run"? One of my favorite movies. Very cute just like your illo this week.

Revely

In English (American South Version *g*) they say "Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!"

in his essay "six to eight black men," david sedaris starts his schpeal with asking foreign cab drivers & locals what their roosters say - absolutely hilarious!! when i saw your cute illustration i immediately thought of it

Just last night I was reading my son his new Eric Carle book, "Where are you going? to see my friend" and teaching him has the animal sounds in Japanese.

Japanese roosters say, "koke kok ko". This site has tons too. http://www.georgetown.edu/faculty/ballc/animals/rooster.html

I love your illustration!

tania

ooh thanks myra for that link!!
yay!

Anja

Kykeliky! (Norwegian)

betty

As someone already told you what a "gallo" says in spanish, i'll tell you that in catalan, a "gall" says just the same, "kikiriki" :)

GREAT illustration, just love it. Thanks!

Satu

Cute illo!
In Finnish roosters say, "kukkokiekuu"!

saska

suprisingly in Slovenia roosters or petelini speak the same language as the spanish ones! "Ki ki-ri ki!"
(our languages are not even close to sounding similar at all)
hens or kokoske however are more individual with their constant "Ko ko ko-dak" converations
