Daisy girl

Chickens are funny-lookin' creatures, aren't they? Daisy is a "blue" (but really black) Japanese silkie chicken ... all fluff and tons of personality. She is sitting very quietly on a little non-fertile egg day after day and I'd hate to tell her that it is to no avail. She looks serious, doesn't she? She'd be a good momma, that one.

That is an amazing drawing!! My counsins have the same kind of chicken and this almost looks like a potrait of their "chick!" Keep it up! :)

Thanks sister, Kate, Al, Alicia, and vanyasart! I am feeling creative again after a very busy holiday season. Thanks so much for stopping by and providing immeasurable support. Hope you are all having a wonderful new year!

I hope she gets to be a Mom someday! We never had the fancy Chickens. But I had pet Chickabiddy. Wonderful drawing.

I love this!! We have chickens, but not silkies. We have americanas and some mixes. They are so fun!
