Male chicken = Galo

Female chicken = Galinha

Roasted chicken = Frango assado

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.

Galinha is the word for an adult female chicken

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"

It depends which part of Brasil you are from. Some say Galinha and some Frango
