    well in german a female chicken is a "Henne, a rooster is a "Hahn" and the fuzzy butts are called
    "Kueken" , the ones you buy in the store are frozen 99% of the time and are usually called "Haehnchen" or "Brathaehnchen"
    ducks are "Enten"
    turkey are "truthahn"(m) and truthenne(f)
    pheasants are "fasane"
