So, is the animal chicken a different word from chicken meat?

Yes.

Rooster/Cockerel (Male Chicken): תרנגול
Hen (Female Chicken): תרנגולת

Chicken (meat): בשר) עוף)

עוף is actually poultry, but if the species isn't indicated, עוף צלוי, for example, will usually be roast chicken.

What is the etymology of תרנגול? Is it one of the few native words with five-letter roots?

Oh thanks. I often use Wiktionary but I didn't know the English edition has quite a few Hebrew etymologies.

Is there an idiom like this? e.g. night owl vs. early bird as in English?
