hen is kalo (revisited)

kalo = hen (bird) (noun) (Some things Google found for "kalo": a very common term; in Hawaiian kalo means taro plant; Kalo (and Kaló) is an unusual last name; a rare to unusual often masculine first name; member of a subgroup of the Romani people in Western and Northern Europe (plural is Kale); KALO is an independent religious TV station serving Honolulu; KALO is the code for Waterloo Regional Airport in Iowa; Kalo Hair Inhibitor; in Esperanto kalo means callus; in Romani kalo means black; Kalo Nero is the name of a place in Greece; name of places in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Turkey, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Lesotho and Indonesia)

Word derivation for "hen" :
Basque = oilo, Finnish = kana
Miresua = kalo

My previous Miresua conlang word for hen was lona. This is a redo of the word so that it no longer ends in -A.

This word is for a domesticated bird, instead of a wild bird. A hen is adult female chicken.

The word hen does not appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-Glass.
