    2. Hopscotch is a girl game.

    Re: a girl’s game vs a girl game

    Hi, Rover.

    Could I ask another question, please?

    A bird nest is the spot in which a bird lays and incubates its eggs and raises its young.

    I wonder if it is correct to say “A birds’ nest” and “A bird’s nest” in the above sentence.

    Thanks.
