When pigs fly in French

Very quick French lesson! How do you say when pigs fly in French?

You may come across the situation when you want to say that something will never happen. In English we often say ‘When pigs fly’. In French you say:

‘Quand les poules auront des dents’
= Literally: When hens will have teeth

Have fun impressing people with this unusual phrase!
