Chicken word soup: Is it coup, coupe, or coop?

Chicken Coupe, Coupe, or Coop?I’ve heard chickens coo and seen them cope. I’ve even seen chicken cops. But when it comes to the structure in which chickens live, is it a chicken coup, coupe, or coop?

Well, it’s not a chicken coup unless you 1) built or got it through “a notable or successful stroke or move” or 2) ousted a leader from power and took it from him/her. Though I think if you pulled off the second, that would automatically qualify as the first too.

And it’s not a chicken coupe unless you’re talking about a two-door car. Which can happen. As can a chicken sedan.

So. . . by the process of elimination—and the power vested in my dictionary—chicken coop it is!

Or chicken house, chicken tractor, chicken ark. . .
