Oh my goodness–what a birthday present! Four little chicks–honestly wasn’t to sure about it—yikes—what to do with them?! Of course it wasn’t long before I had named them all—and made them a posh little Hen House in the backyard. They truly are loads of fun—and a great subject matter for painting!!! The kitten showed up a few months later in the chicken coop and has been around ever since, certain they are his mothers. Meet “Roo” the cat (short for Rooster) and the Spice Girls.
