Деловая курица: someone who is all flap and no fly

Found that in the Moscow Times of April 1, with no further detail. I trust it's not an April Fool's Day prank.

Can anyone give further details, or at least the pronunciation?

I think it is a translation of the Texas phrase "all hat and no cattle".
