Not OK to say "a bird, a duck and a chicken"? (I thought Duolingo was gonna tell a joke about them walking into a bar)

The course is still in beta, so we'd best brace ourselves for losing hearts over things like this and report it.

Yeah, it sucks being grammatically correct. It always takes hearts off me when I use proper grammar.

I read somewhere (no idea of reliability) that in irish you have to include agus between every entry of the list. Example in english- x,y and z but in irish- x agus y agus z. Any ideas?

Perhaps a more formal way of doing it?

Yes, that’s how it’s done. But note that agus isn’t typically used to separate a list of adjectives, e.g. Tá an cailín ard griandaite óg álainn ó Ipanema ag siúl.
