It Crows, a new chicken rooster painting

It Crows  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $330
Lucked out at Farmpark in Kirtland, OH last week:  they let the chickens out of the coup, woohoo!  I was able to photograph them inside the "Well Bred Shed" and outside in natural light...  Many great shots were acquired, especially a pair of sweet chickies who I hope to paint later...  It got me wondering is a rooster also a chicken? (Yes.) Also, how does one tell the difference between male and female? A common saying among people in the know:  "If it crows, it's a rooster, if it lays an egg, it's a hen."  This one for SURE crows. :)
