The Rooster is the tenth of the twelve-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese Zodiac.   The Rooster is a common subject in Chinese painting, belonging to the category of flower-and-bird painting. The Chinese character for the Chicken (鸡, ) is a homophone of auspicious (吉, ), thus making it particularly popular among Chinese artists. Source: http://www.chinaonlinemuseum.com
