I like painting chickens, and have produced many paintings on them. You can never tire of them, because they have so much character in their faces and head.This one I have Painted is really a mongrel. A bit of every breed in chicken. I have owned them ever since I was a boy. and we had a cockerel like my painted one in our pens. He was fantastic. He looked after his flock, and always let them eat before him. Finding extra good bits of food for his special hens. And we called him The General. He was first on duty every day. And crowed until he was hoarse, waking up the neighbourhood whilst doing so. A Great Bird.
