Seriously. I think I read that it is a bird of a certain age. Is that true?
young female chicken up to one year. then hen.
cockeral, up to one year, for male. then rooster.
Thank you so much for clearing that up. The gal at the feed store had me so confused!
that's no prob! it is a little confusing, and not everyone sticks to these titles. it's just some tech stuff.
I have to ay I have found 99% good and kind posters here. Helpful information for a newbie like me. just started a week ago and we are already in love with our chickens.
I thought a pullet was one you fired from a pun!
The evil English teacher in me can't help but cry out, "CockerEL!"
I don't mean any harm or offense, and I'm usually not picky about spelling in everyday posts...just figured that anyone who is new should get the benefit of the correct spelling of the chicken term.
The English teacher is now satisfied, and will return to regularly-scheduled relaxation before school begins next Tuesday.

Chicken lady you are a woman after my own heart. My dh grades notes from the teacher and sends them back. HAHA!
