More chicken trouble

I asked the neighbour of our house if she would like to sell some chickens. I asked for brown ones not white one's as here the brown chicken breeds seem to be stronger than white. That's when I got confused, she told me she didn't have brown just white. I could see brown chickens and had never seen a white chicken at her house. After going inside she came out with white cotton and handed it to me and said sorry I just have white. I saved face and said thanks but I really wanted brown. I walked away thinking I would get chickens another day, but wondering what went wrong with our conversation.
As it turns out, I asked for Galinha (chicken) and she brought me linha (cotton)misunderstanding my accent.
