chook is a generic australian slang term for chicken----here a chicken is a baby or something you eat-----a chook is the term we all use for " chickens" that are no longer babies--------we can tell our overseas members by the terms you use----anyone that says chook is Australian ( or from New Zealand which in your neck of the woods is almost the same anyway)


cheers pam

Don't feel too bad Heritage Tom... I'm born and raised a Midwesterner (and you're probably the only person on the board who understands what that means) and am an Aussie transplant of 4 years. I spent an absolutely embarassing amount of time trying to work out what the heck a chook was the first time I came across the term. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've yet to train myself to say "a hen and her chickens" and get ribbed for calling them plain old chicks or annoy some of the old timers by calling an adult bird a chicken. :wink: :roll: :oops: :lol:

It ends up okay as we generally regard each other as mutually amusing for our strange terms. My husband thought as was absolutely nuts for suggesting peanutbutter and jelly made a good sandwhich. (Jelly here being a term for jello... which as you can imagine would be a bit weird... :lol:) Meanwhile they think fried eggs and beetroots go on burgers!
