OK, so you may have thought about chooks and thought you would talk to somebody who knows about chooks. This is a good idea, to get as much information as possible, the only problem is that they think you know what they are talking about!
Here are a few translations to help you on your way:
Technically a one day old chicken, but more generally a very young chick.
A young female chicken from day-old to 15 months.
Another term for chickens/chiooks/poultry that breeders like to use.
The age when a pullet is ready to start laying eggs, generally from around 21 weeks of age.
When a pullet drops her feathers, around autumn. Don't be alarmed, it is normal for your chook to stop laying during the moult.
A pullet after her first moult. A hen's eggs will be larger than her pullet eggs.
When a hen stops laying and wants to sit on her eggs to incubate them. She may not be sitting on any eggs, but will be in a state of mind to sit regardless. Should you want to put some fertile eggs under her she will happily sit on them and be their foster mother!
A young male chicken from day-old to 12 months, before he graduates into a Cock Bird/Rooster.
A dedicated chook loving/breeding/showing type person.
