Shouldn't this be Huhnchen? I thought Haehnchen was chicken to eat?

Hahn = male, Huhn = female - funny that people always think, they are made to be eaten.

Not that Leo is the end-all of sources, but according to it, Haehnchen is related to cooking, and Huehnchen is to the animal. Hence my, and perhaps many people's, confusion.

Wiktionary also appears to tell it is mainly used for slaughtered chicken.

DL accepted the firs answer but translated the second one: 1) Die Ente ist mit dem Hähnchen 2) Die Ente isst mit dem Hähnchen Is it true that both of these sentences are gramatically correct?

From what I understood, "bei" would be used to say that something is with something. So it would be "Die Ente ist beim Hänchen". Please someone correct me if I'm wrong! Thannk you.

Beide Varianten sind richtig: 'bei' und 'mit' .. dem Hähnchen.

2,3,4 sind korrekt, 1) macht Sinn, klingt aber seltsam; 5+6 sind grammatikalisch falsch. Viel Spaß weiterhin beim Lernen!
