As most know the male avian that we refer to as chickens are properly called cocks, however that term has been used for many rude and crude terminology limited people the last fifty years, yet South Carolina in an attempt to create something unique about there program continue to use this term today, it always gets a mild smile or depending on the amount of alcohol consumed.
