note on the painting: This portrait is of Cinco, the fifth chicken that we picked out last Spring. She's an Ancona hen. When she was small, she was "tasted" by our Black Lab, Bella. Cinco lived to tell the tale, but she wasn't very happy to see our dog for a while after the incident. Cinco is one of our smallest chickens, and she generously lays one small white egg for us every day.

Five Hens

note on the painting:
This little painting is of our original flock of hens. Last spring we got 5 baby chicks, and within a few short months they were soon outside and free-ranging around our property. This began our adventure in the joys of raising chickens. This year we're enjoying fresh eggs, and have added 5 new chicks to our flock.
