"Il y a" = there is (or) there are, not "it is".

"C'est une poulette noire" marked wrong and seems like it should be accepted. According to Websters, a poulette is "a young hen"

I forgot to do the translation in my post: Poulette -> pullet = a young hen

Anyone know why "Il est" is not allowed? I thought that could mean "it is" as well. Thanks.
