    Given your penchant for chickens I would have thought you'd visit the Chicken Capital of Denmark, Coopenhagen. I hear they even have a chicken flavored ice-cream there, CoopenHäagen-Dazs

    Sorry, I'll show myself out

    I waited too long to harvest my chicken eggs so I have plenty of rotten ones to throw if anyone wants to join in.

    Well found cdosr but Barn-and-Field sounds Township-wise good enough for me.
    But no hard feelings, you are allowed to stay

    Whatever made you think that- said she, wide eyed with astonishment???

    No, really, you’re probably right

    - A mesh structure that must keep mosquitoes out and fresh air inside our houses.
    - BBQ, baking cakes and grilling meat!
    Lol...Yes...In Dutch...

    Cattle grids keep cows, deer, horses and sheep from crossing. (A ferry is a transport ship so irrelevant at first glance). Hard to see the link to rooster unless the bars they're made with look like perches.
    Link to mosquito netting/screens also not obvious.
    BBQ/oven (or should I say "ze oaffen") comes from roast/rôti/rosti rather than roost. (Of course roast could be rooted to roost as male chickens less useful than the female so more likely to be cooked)
    ETA. Roast comes from grid in oven so that's where cattle grid comes from.
    Rooster is an Americanism for cockerel as apparently the four letter short form could be considered rude.
    Oh my...yes...on that last part.

    And LOL again at the consequences of your question I would bet you just wanted to use that emoji finally, eh? or did you know about these many meanings? (I cautiously didn't look it up in <G>erman.)
    ...
    Lol...I should have expected it...

    Well..the op said they wanted more chickens...I was honestly asking...why not have roosters? (not really for the game though )

    Always err to the side of caution!


    I find it interesting the different meanings for words from other countries. Like a biscuit...for us Americans it is a soft, flaky bread. While in other countries it is generally a flat, hard type bread.

    Ooh, thank you - that explains the meal 'biscuits and gravy' that has always puzzled me.

    American biscuit looks almost exactly like our (plain) scone, but has a more bready taste.

    The “gravy” they then subject this deliciousness to is some foul gloopy white sauce stuff.

    Our biscuits come in many many varieties, and are essentially hard cookies.

    Not all "gravy" is "some foul gloopy white sauce stuff"; here is a sample recipe that I like:

    It's not "foul" but a deliciously thick white sauce infused with pork sausage crumbles. Taste is devine, texture is satisfying, Southern US comfort food at its finest. You guys don't know what you're missing.
