One foul swoop

This phrase, used to refer to something that happens all at once, or all in one go, should properly be “one fell swoop.” It is first recorded in Shakespeare's play Macbeth, where it is used by Macduff on learning of the cruel murder of his wife and children by the tyrannical king: “All my pretty ones? Did you say all? O hell-kite! All? What, all my pretty chickens and their dam, at one fell swoop?”

“Fell” is an archaic word meaning “fierce” or “deadly,” which only survives in this phrase and in the word “felon.”

Macduff's use of the phrase imagines Macbeth as a ferocious bird of prey diving down to carry off his family in its cruel talons. Because the word“fell” is otherwise obsolete, people frequently replace it with a similar alternative, most commonly “foul,” but sometimes “full” and even “fowl” (even though chickens are hardly known for their aggressive swooping).
