    Seriously. I think I read that it is a bird of a certain age. Is that true?

    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.

    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.
