"Moi?"

Our local paper just had an article about keeping chickens in your yard...mind you this was within city limits and ofcourse there are restrictions..only up to 4 hens...and no roosters...which makes sense for the crowing factor. Not that I'm considering it...because I think along with the eggs, which would be good, I hear there's also an increase in rodents due to the feed...no thanks! I'll just continue to snap pictures and paint them...

I can't even handle the dogs and cats we have now. I could never add chickens to the mix! Still, I enjoy seeing everyone's paintings. This one is lovely and I love the touches of blue in the feathers!

I really support the whole backyard chicken campaign. Three or four chickens make fine eggs and chickens can be lovely pets. I always liked to sit and hang out with mine as they would patrol around for bugs and make lovely little "gerling" sounds.

...the only problem I see is the cleaning of the hen house - did one too many when I was growing up... but the eggs are amazing. I just love your chickens - what size are the paintings? and the prices? I will check to see if you have a website. I will go to that if you do. Great work - I really enjoy it.
