Flock

FLOCK, noun [Latin floccus. It is the same radically as flake, and applied to wool or hair, we write it lock. See Flake.]

2. A company or collection of fowls of any kind, and when applied to birds on the wing, a flight; as a flock of wild-geese; a flock of ducks; a flock of blackbirds. in the United States, flocks of wild-pigeons sometimes darken the air.

3. A body or crowd of people. [little used. Gr. a troop.]

4. A lock of wool or hair. Hence, a flockbed.
