Why is there no "con" in front of "cá"?

Because when you're talking about something in general you can omit the classifier/counting word.

So would "va ga" be "and chicken" in this sense?

I put con cá and it was marked incorrect. Bit harsh

When talking about eating animals you should use "thịt" (meat) and not "con" if you need a classifier.
