I need an app icon for a game called "Poker Chicken".
The icon must feature a chicken character. The graphic for the chicken

playing cards) to indicate that it is a poker-themed game.
The app icon will be used for iPhone and Android games, so the
resolution should be up to 1024x1024 (or 2048x2048), and have limited

poker chips, money, betting-themed items etc. are probably not

cards being a good idea.
Finally, a bird icon I like
