My wife and I got three chickens on April 1, 2013, and we were immediately struck by their beauty. Chickens are the sort of utilitarian animal that most think of only in terms of its products: eggs, boneless skinless breasts, drumsticks. But once we started spending time with our chickens it became clear that these creatures have their own personality and beauty. Our chickens lik to perch on a railing on our back porch, and that’s where I painted Little Madrid (our chickens are named after cities we’ve spent time in). Unfortunately, Little Madrid has since died, but we remember her as a strikingly handsome and proud little hen.
