The rooster is often (accurately) pictured in art as crowing at the break of dawn. He can often be seen sitting on fence posts or other objects, where he crows to proclaim his territory. However, when a cock looks into the sun he will crow at any time of the day - even sometimes on a bright moonlit night. He has several other calls as well, and can cluck the same as a hen.
Roosters generally tend to wail when they are
distressed or in heat. The sound made by the
cock is spelled onomatopoeically as
"cock-a-doodle-do" in English
but otherwise in other languages, such as
in Dutch: ”KUKELEKU!”
Tell me the sound he makes in YOUR language!
I kept the background simple this time to show off the brushwork and the soft feathers with a rich palette of reds and burnt sienna.
I think you agree that this rooster deserves this bold golden frame!
It's proudly hanging in my sunroom next to the chick and definitely is an eye catcher!
