I'm also told Tony Minieri has written a guide for this piece that uses ribbon for the coxcomb. You will need to contact him through Edwardian Needle.
Many thanks to the kind people on the ANG email list for all these answers!
UPDATE: Robin King will have a guide for the No Name Chicken canvas in mid-September 2014. Thanks for reminding me to update this, Kirsten!
