Ron and Hermione re-enter the chamber in Harry’s seventh year; knowing that Basilisk venom will destroy a Horcrux, and having a Horcrux they need to destroy, Ron, who has twice now heard Harry pronounce the word ” open ” in Parseltongue, opens the Chamber by imitating the sound of the word.
1998 Opening Ron was able to open the Chamber by mimicking Parseltongue. Once inside, Hermione stabbed Hufflepuff’s Cup with a Basilisk Fang that was taken from the dead Basilisk’s skeleton, which destroyed the Horcrux.
When Harry, Ron, and Hermione discover the first message written on the wall , when Filch’s cat is petrified, Hermione says, “The Chamber of Secrets has been opened.

A chicken egg hatched under a toad will produce a Basilisk, King of the Serpents, however, the cry of a rooster is fatal to the Basilisk. This is why Tom Riddle ordered Ginny Weasley to kill all the roosters surrounding Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as to ensure the welfare of his Basilisk.
