The cockatrice is hatched from a cockerel's egg, and resembles a dragon the size and shape of a cockerel. The English word is derived from the Latin calcatrix, but in Welsh it is called ceiliog neidr: 'adder-cock.' Its touch, breath and glance are lethal.

Since 2015, Cockatrice Books has been bringing you new and classic translations of Welsh literature, and original Welsh fiction. No money is spent on advertising. Reviews, shares and recommendations are greatly appreciated.

There is a saying in Welsh, Y ddraig goch ddyry gychwyn, which means, 'The red dragon leads the way.' The cockatrice spits at your beery patriotism.
