Let's Fly the Coop I love you, a bushel and a peck. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Peep peep. Why did the chicken cross the road? Here chickie, chickie. Do the funky chicken. Don't count your chickens before they've hatched. A chicken in every pot. How's your nest egg? Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Madder than a hen. Hippie chick. Feeling hen-pecked? Look who flew the coop. Walking on eggshells. That really flaps my wattle. Don't ruffle your feathers. As spry as a Spring chicken. You're a good egg.
