Local Chicken Farm

One day I was driving in my town and out of the corner of my eye I spied what looked like a giant chicken on one of the streets. So I made a u-turn and checked it out. I found a poultry farm that has been in existence since 1936. In addition to the poultry there are goats and assorted other creatures that are sold. It sounds a bit gruesome to me, but they apparently have a good enough business to keep going. I do know someone who always selects her live, fresh chickens but she doesn't live anywhere near here. I kept the chicken statue in mind and the other day went back to sketch it. There is a buggy behind it and an old red house too.


  1. Excellent sketch Joan! It's amazing what we find when we drive around in our own town! Nice work!

  2. I grinned when I first saw the chicken. I know i would like whoever owns the farm. great painting...

  3. I love the chicken! It is a funny story, I have seen places like this that sell fresh eggs but not live chickens. People want to know where their food is coming from, it is a great idea!

  4. Good sketch! I do love these sorts of amusing huge statues!

  5. Looks like a great place. Glad you sketched it

  6. Hilda, LOL This was a surprise. Thanks.

    Julie, glad it made you smile. Thank you.

    Celia, thanks. It just seemed a little unusual to see it.

    Kate, I know this is something you would sketch too. Thanks.

    Polly, thank you!
