Even the feathers of the rooster, who is balancing on one foot, are delicately depicted, with speckles painted on the wings. For the foot, yellow coloring was applied atop a spreading of white pigment, expressing the texture of the skin. At the rooster's foot is a squatting hen, with three lovely chicks huddling nearby. This composition evokes a feeling of warm familial affection, along with a somehow humorous expression of the birds.
