Painting - Oil On A Loose Canvas Sheet
Nightmare was a University Project that I did at university, My nightmares occured when i was a child and this Rooster visited and Terrified me by creeping into my subconcious mind.... Which (to me and my very overactive childlike imagination) resulted in some Terrifying Nightmares !!!
A rooster, also known as a cockerel, cock (from Old English coc) or chanticleer, is a male chicken (Gallus gallus). The female is called a hen.
Immature male chickens less than one year old are called cockerels. The term "rooster" originates in the United States and the term is widely used throughout North America, as well as Australia and New Zealand.In the United Kingdom and Ireland the older term "cockerel" is more commonly used.
"Cock" is in general used as the name for a male of other species of bird, for example "Cock sparrow". "Roosting" is the action of perching aloft to sleep at night, and is done by both sexes. The rooster is polygamous, but cannot guard several nests of eggs at once. He guards the general area where his hens are nesting, and will attack other roosters that enter his territory. During the daytime, he usually sits on a high perch, usually 3�5 feet off the ground to serve as a lookout for his flock. He will sound a distinctive alarm call if predators are nearby.
