Hey guys and gals - I have a request from all y'all to help me come up with one more "fowl" pun that I am hoping to seed a new crossword puzzle I am working on. My initial thoughts are for a trio of puns that involve a bird of the poultry species. Here is what I have so far:
PULLET SURPRISE (clue: *what a young hen got when she won an award for literature)
CAPON CLIPPER (clue: *what a sexless male chicken does to save on groceries)
???? (I need a third and preferably one that has either 14 letters, though 12 letters total might work)
As the "unifier", or "theme"/"reveal" that ties the three together is something along the lines of FOWL LANGUAGE (clue: what's found in punny poultry lexicon, and a hint to the starred clues).
I had TURKEY COBBLERS as my third, but to maintain the symmetry, the "bird" should be the punned word.
Thanks in advance for your assistance. What do you think??
