    Chooks are what people 'across the pond' call their chickens. The 'pond' is the ocean, so people in other parts of the world call chickens... chooks.

    Thank you. I was trying to figure out if it was a cross bred chicken of some kind or not.

    Australians call them chooks mostly, we English usually refer to them as hens for the girlies and cockerels for the "Roos"
