A portrait I did for my sister's husband for Christmas! They have a bunch of chickens, all Buffs and Australorps, and one in particular caught my niece's eye when they were still young. My then 2 year old niece (now 3) name her Dugan, and told everyone Dugan was her friend. When asked how she know Dugan was her friend she replied "I looked him in the eye, and I just knew," in a matter of fact sort of 'duh, you guys' way! XD Of course, how obvious! Dugan IS a hen, but has a pretty mighty comb. So I had to use photos of hens and roosters as reference. I'm no chicken expert, but I hope I got it right!
