Not lady like as defined in a previous era. Something like ‘a woman should be seen and not heard’. Hens don’t crow and neither should a woman be heard. This no longer applies in most of the free world unless you interpretation is of a promiscuous woman.
“A whistling woman and a crowing hen, Are neither fit for God nor men;”
“A whistling wife and a crowing hen, Will call the old gentleman out of his den;”
“A whistling wife and a crowing hen, Will come to God, but God knows when;”
