Chooks

(Domestic fowl)

The English language contains no single word that refers to the domestic cock and hen collectively and exclusively. However, the word “chooks” (from British dialect) is widely used in New Zealand and Australia to describe this poultry species (Gallus gallus domesticus), and is accordingly used on this website.
