Chickens - A6 Card

Chickens - A6 Card


Packed in a cellophane bag, this A6 size card includes a white envelope from recycled paper and is left blank for your own message.  Post it using a standard first class stamp from Royal Mail.

I found these chickens free ranging on a farm in Alsace and painted them from life. It was great to catch the character of this fierce cockerel. There was no doubt in his mind that he was king of his farmyard and terrorised everything that crossed his path.  He was also mean to his hens and would take food out of their beaks with a savage peck.

The following year when I returned, the bird had gone. 'Coq au vin,' said the farmer when I asked about its whereabouts. Have to say the hens looked a lot happier.
