Chicken Chat

Seems I was wrong about chickens and there’s more to them than just laying massive eggs.

Dr Chris Evans from MacQuarie University in Sydney, Australia has found out chickens love to talk. He reckons “Tuck, Tuck” means “Here is some food”. Totally not convinced by his translation, I looked into it.

Turns out these Aussie ‘chooks’ have only gone and learnt the morse code. How cool is that?

“Tuck, Tuck” = ‘dash dash’ = ‘T, T’, short for ‘Total Twat’. Hilarious. Apparently they were saying it coz Dr Evans was on his knees with bits of seed going: “Talk to me, chickens, talk to me”. Jesus.

Anyway, this is other stuff they say:

“Tuck, Tick, Tick, Tuck, Tick, Tick, Tick” = ‘dash dot dot dash dot dot dot’ = TITS.’Tuck, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tuck, Tuck, Tuck’ = ‘dash dot dot dot dot dot dash das dash’ = BUM – bit of a long way round quite a simple word that one…

Won’t even go there with ‘pigeon’, takes forever.

Turns out ‘Cock a doodle doo’ may have evolved from morse, and simply means: ‘Wake up you lazy fucks’.

Tbh – not sure if UK Chickens have totally sussed the whole Chicken Morse yet… gonna find out tho coz it rocks.

If they have, I’m thinking of getting a load of pigeon pals together for a flyby over some chicken farm somewhere all going: ‘Coo, Cuck, Coo, Cuck, Cuck, Coo, Cuck, Coo, Cuck, Coo, Cuck’ = ‘dash dot dash dot dot dash dot dash dot dash dot’ = KFC. I’d piss myself.

    Your pal Bri

    Snowflake: Hey! Good to hear from you too! Hanging well despite the cold… I know – hilarious – Chris Evans. Always wondered what he got up to in his spare time – talking to chickens!
    Your pal Bri P

    Elf Mandinio: Yeah – maybe ‘bock’ is the English chicken morse? Still not found out just how widespread this chicken morse thing is…? A pal reckons sheep gave it a go with the ‘baah baah’ thing but never worked out how to do the dots…
    Your pal Bri
