Polka dot lady

Yep, another lady. This one has one crazy widows peak. Anyhow she has a bright polka dot tissue paper over the board, which is a hard book cover back. Painting on tissue paper is kinda of fun. It sure makes the faces full of texture.

Not one of the best days at the micro farm. Libby our Rock Barred has died, and instantly. We had just given the ladies some bananas one of their favorite foods. They were all fine and dandy then but when I checked on them about one hour later Libby (the black and white one) was dead. Right near the ladder near the food dish. I looked up sudden chicken death and have found that it does happen, it is a mystery. The only other option is that she was near the ladder and maybe one of the others jumped from the coop and accidental jumped on her neck. We checked her out carefully, her vent was clean, she was not egg bound nor did she show signs of mites. The only two things i can think of is a jumping accident or heart attack.
Either way today just sucked. She was a mighty fine chicken.

Random Faces

 Acrylic and pencil done on recycled hard back book covers. I figure most books use acid free paper and binding so might as well take advantage of the supply i have.
