A chicken, a bird used for its meat and eggs. Generally depicted as the white head of a chicken (hen or rooster) looking left, with a yellow beak, red comb on its head, and red wattle on its neck.
May be consumed in the form of 🍗 Poultry Leg. Not to be confused with the full-bodied 🐓 Rooster, though their applications overlap. Also may be used for metaphorical senses of chicken (e.g., “coward”).
