    Animal names

    Can anybody point to or help me assemble a comprehensible list of common names of different animals?

    This is, common names and proper names for adult / baby animals as well as related terminology.

    For example: rooster, hen, cockerel, chicken-cock, chick, dorking, etc.

    If this is unfeasible at least give me your appreciation and suggestions.

    Dorking is a breed of chicken, like Rhode Island Red.

    Well, you live and learn - I thought it was a megatypo for 'duckling'! (Students may want to know that 'Dorking' is also a place-name: Dorking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .)

    To underline 5jj's point, classing 'dorking' with 'hen' is like classing 'German Shepherd" with 'dog'.

    I thought the same; I just googled the word as a precaution.
