Welcome - obviously I'm the 3rd one not from "down under" to look it up. A chook refers to chicken.

Have you not heard of the "chook raffle" at the local booser? Paul Hogan's (Crocodile Dundee") offsider Strop used to run them all the time in his Lifesaver cap.

A perk of being a Yank from across the pond with a life long passion for working Kelpies...I knew a chook was a chicken. ;-)

Chook can also be someone lacking grey matter, or just done something real stupid....

Can be the MIL or mother as well, usually along with the words....silly old.... :lol: :clap:
