Painting: Just Feathering Out

8 x 10 oil on stretched canvas

Here is one of our girls when she was just getting her big-girl feathers. The newest additions to our family are 5 (female) chickens. This painting is of Fiona, our Partridge Plymouth Rock when she was just a few weeks old. Now at 5 months, the chickens aren't laying eggs yet, but the twins eagerly run to the chicken tractor each morning to check just in case. Fiona is now a deep red color with black markings. The chickens provide endless entertainment, and Fiona is particularly feisty, often mistaking fingers for worms.
