"The woman has a chicken schnitzel."
Translation:Femeia are un șnițel de pui.
so can găină be used for chicken, because i thought it meant specifically hen. Hen schnitzel does sound a bit weird to me.
Yeah I've seen them flip-flop on 'chicken'. I'd love to know this one, too!
So... i think the plural găini can be chickens or hens. găină is hen. Pui is chicken, as in baby chickens. Correct me if i'm wrong.
You are right, literally pui = baby chickens and gaină is adult. When talking about dishes, however, gaină is rarely used, if at all.
Yes, but the thing is, we have seen the phrase şnițel de găină being used a few times in this lesson, which prompted me to ask that question.
