    Yes, that is what the woman asked me:rolleyes:

    There was also this conversation when a lady called about the pullets I'm selling, and my 8yo son answered the phone(think of Chuck answering in a "Ben Stien" monotone-- that's how he answers dumb questions)...

    Lady: What is a pullet
    Chuck: It's a person who makes up poems
    Lady: No, not a poet, a PULLET
    Chuck: It's a girl chicken


    LOL:lol:[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I think people figure that the chicken you buy in the store is female. I know that on these cooking shows, they use rooster for some dishes specifically because of the difference in meat.

    Maybe that's what she meant and just worded it funny [​IMG] I had never even heard the word pullet until BYC [​IMG]

    you're so nice, giving people the benefit of the doubt and all LOL! in a previous conversation, this same woman didn't know the difference b/t a hen and a rooster though.

    the lady calling about the pullet, I mostly thought my son's response was funny. I understand that a lot of people might not know what a pullet is.​

    Oh, I see LOL Yeah, that's me... giving people the benefit of the doubt. [​IMG] My husband is always teasing me for it [​IMG]

    Reminds me of the conversation I had with my friend recently..... out to lunch I was telling her about my breeding plans. She says "I know some chickens... there's chickens, roosters, hens & barred rocks." then I was telling her about some of the breeds and I mention something about red hens and she says "No, ROOSTERS are red!" [​IMG] tehehehehe

    I've had lots of weird Q since I got chickens the weirdest ( in my opion) Is- Where do you keep them? I've had that Q twice in 4 days. My Answer is outside in a coup. [​IMG]
