talking of eggs, hens and chickens...

what is the difference between a hen and a chicken?

i know i could probably google, but was just wondering following the previous thread.

by the way, i adore capon....have had that a couple of christmases - which seems the only time the butcher i use gets them in.

Isn't chicken the name of the animal? So the hen is the female of that animal, the male is the cock. Rather like sheep; the female is the ewe and the ram the male.
