    What is mit Hüne ins Bett gehen in English? Thanks
    Can I say he went to bed with the chicken as a kind of irony

    Mit den Hühnern...?

    I suppose you could say he goes to bed with the chickens... if it fits your context.

    "Hüne" ain't a chicken:

    Hüne /'/ der; Hünen, Hünen giant
    (Duden-Oxford)

    Trotzdem ist Dein Satz kurios.

    "Mit den Hühnern ins Bett gehen" ist eine deutsche Redewendung. Sie bedeutet: sich früh schlafen legen = früh ins Bett gehen. Ich weiß allerdings nicht, ob es nicht doch "Mit den Hühnern aufstehen" heißt. Das wäre dann: früh aufstehen.

    OT - macpet, still laughing :-))

    Platz, No, macpet is NOT joking - Hüne really is a giant :-)

    Farmers are said "to go to bed with the chickens," in the sense of "when the sun sets = early" and to get up "at the crack of dawn".

    Platz, The German version is also "mit den Hühnern ins Bett gehen" not Hünen!
