Hereof, what do you call a chicken?
"Hen" and "rooster" are terms used to refer to adult chickens only. By contrast, baby chickens of either sex are called "chicks," but can also be called "peeps." Pullets, cockerels, juveniles: When they're young, female chickens are "pullets," and male chickens are "cockerels."
One may also ask, what is an adolescent chicken called? A teenage chicken is called a pullet (female) or cockerels (male). Backyard chickens are considered teenagers from 4 to 17 weeks of age.
One may also ask, what are old hens called?
Hi, Blackbird: Sometimes old chickens are referred to as "biddies," but more often an old hen is called a "spent" if she is no longer laying eggs.
What is a Roo chicken?
"Roo" is just short for "rooster," and "capon" refers to a neutered rooster. What you may not know is that we don't normally refer to young chickens or chicks by those terms. A baby chick is not a hen or a rooster. "Hen" and "rooster" are terms used to refer to adult chickens only.
