- poultry:  Poultry comes ultimately from a Latin word for a ‘young animal’, which also gave English pony. It was borrowed from Old French pouleterie, a derivative of pouletier ‘poultry dealer’. This in turn was based on poulet (source of English pullet ), a diminutive form of poule ‘hen’, which went back via Vulgar Latin *pulla to Latin pullus ‘young animal, young horse, young chicken’ (source of English pony and related to foal). Punch, as in ‘Punch and Judy’, may come from pullus too.
=> foal, pony, pullet
