Guess What? by Nambroth Guess What? by Nambroth
A wee painting of one of my hens, the uncreatively named Lorp. She is a black Australorp hen.

Ink and watercolor, approximately 5" x 7"
The green parts are iridescent in person.


(I am resigned to the fact that I am going to get "chicken butt" comments. That is acceptable.)

You've nailed that beetle-green sheen that my Aussie; Black Copper Maran & the BCM-X hens all have. Great job =)

Great painting! Is the response "guess what I just ate/dug up/killed"? It would be if it were one of my lorps! ;)

In response to the chicken butt comment, you did a good job on Lorp's "skirt"' it looks spot on!

Chickens 'r awesome! I guess a little bit like lapsucks, probably equally unintelligent at times :P Call me weird, but I love chicken and duck butts alike, somehow they're always the softest part of the whole thing (especially with swans, though then more like the side-but, if you get what I mean) :B

I used to have a bunch of australorps, one was my favorite and her name was chickenzilla because she was always twice the size of the other, even the roo, but she was sweet bird, but sadly she was apart of my market project in FFA (sold for egg production no food) and she was the best of the bunch, but the guy who bought her i know very well and shes living fat and happy in a large free-ranged area

The growling is my favourite. We don't have enough nest boxes for all of our broody hens so they're laying all over the henhouse. You walk in and it's a chorus of growling.

One of my faverolles doesn't growl-- she "sckreeee!"s like a hawk! The rest growl properly.

I looked at the image and shouted out "Chicken butt!" before realizing what the title was. That's not even a phrase I use.
So I think that's great. You did a great job with focusing on that chicken's butt.
