Chooks or Chickens

Where and how do you get Chooks out of chickens, where did the word Chooks come from, or is it just an ancient English bastardisation of the word Chickens.....!!!!


Doesn't it have something to do with the sound some of them make??


I thought it was to do with the sound they make


Yup def think its the sound


It seems to be Australian in origin - so we should stop using it immediately!


Oh oh...those blimmen Aussies!


Definitely the noise they make and yes the Aussies claim the nickname.


I'd say its definitely the sound they make.


They are all covered in feathers,so all the same and chook is just slang for chicken...love eating it in so many different ways...:)


I think it is just the Australian name.
