This is correct but don't explain it. I think that frango refers to the type of meat (here from a chicken). Like you have carne bovina (beef) e carne suĂ­na (pork).

Is Portuguese like Spanish in the sense that there are separate words for a living chicken and the chicken you eat?

I believe that "Frango" is the meat while "Galinha" is the living bird.

It's actually the same. Frango for an alive chicken and frango for a fried chicken.

Galinha in portuguese and "gallina" in spanish is the word for an adult female chicken that can also be eated an you ca say: "a menina come galinha"
