A fanciful and unbelievable tale.
Origin
The phrase may have originated at Stony Stratford in Buckinghamshire, England. The village has two pubs, the Cock and the Bull. Coaches between London to Birmingham changed horses at one pub or the other. The banter of the rival groups of travellers, from England's two largest cities, resulted in exaggerated and fanciful stories.
Meaning
Act hastily.
Origin
Flintlock rifles can be fired from full cock or half cock but only work well from full cock.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

(Matthew 26:34; Mark 13:35; 14:30) etc. The domestic cock and hen were early known to the ancient Greeks and Romans, and as no mention is made in the Old Testament of these birds, and no figures of them occur on the Egyptian monuments, they probably came into Judea with the Romans, who, as is well known, prized these birds both as articles of food and for cock-fighting.

Rakefet
Cock A "very occult bird, much appreciated in ancient augury and symbolism. According to the Zohar, the cock crows three times before the death of a person; . . . As the cock was always connected in symbology with the Sun (or solar gods), Death and Resurrection, it has found its appropriate place in the four Gospels in the prophecy about Peter repudiating his Master before the cock crowed thrice. The cock is the most magnetic and sensitive of all birds, hence its Greek name alectruon" (TG 86). In the Zoroastrian Avesta, the cock is called Parodarsh "he who foresees" the coming dawn, and is also termed the drum of the worlds, for he crows in the dawn which dazzles away the fiends of the Avesta: thus he shares with the dawn the honor of the victory.
