Chanticleer 

 

Chanticleer 7.5×11 wc 140lb Canson cp

I always thought Chanticleer was the French word for Rooster. My Acadian friend tells me the correct word is coq. A little research  on dictionary.com shows Chanicleer is the proper name of the rooster in Chaucer’s Cantibury Tales. It’s from the old french word chantecler which means “sing loud.”   

Perhaps this is somewhat appropriate for 2017 – The Year of the Rooster.
