    Thai language is quite confusing. You have to put the whole complete phrase or sentence that comes along with those words to comprehend the exact meaning of those words. But as the words stand by themselves, they mean like this:

    How many chicken?.

    "Kee" is generally used in Thai questions when asking "how many?".

    Kee-wan?. How many days?

    Kee-khon?. How many persons?.

    Kee-loh?. How many dozens?

    Kee-chua-mong?. How many hours?

    Kee-chin?. How many pieces?.

    "Kee" also means "to ride".

    Kee-ma. Ride a horse.

    Kee-oot. Ride a camel.

    Kee-kwai. Ride a buffalo.

    Kee-poo-ying. Ride a woman. (slang, vulgar, crude, dirty usage)

    "Gai" and "Kai" are two Thai words that sound almost the same to the ears of a foreigner (most foreigners can't distinguish the sound difference, while native Thais can).

    Gai - chicken

    Kai - egg

    Gai - chicken is sometimes used as a slang (coloquial usage) that refers to a young lady/woman (same as "chick" in English).

    If you aren't sure whether you heard those words correctly, here are the possible meanings:

    How many chicken?.

    How many eggs?.

    Ride a chicken. (This seems illogical, as nobody rides a chicken, except when you take its vulgar meaning).

    Ride an egg. (This seems illogical as well).

    Edit:

    The poster below me is also correct. "Kee" also means poop or feces. So "Kee Gai' can also mean "chicken poop" or "chicken $hit". This might be the most probable meaning if you saw it in a movie.

    I'm Thai

    "Kee Gai" means Chicken's poop

    it doesn't make sense when it comes alone,

    but we have an idiom in which it appear

    "เหยียบขี้ไก่ไม่ฝ่อ" = Yiap Kee Gai Mai Foh

    you say it to someone who cannot deal the problems or something by himself

    Thai is not a version of English that has been translated... this would make no sense in thai. Being colorful here would likely involve paint.
