I think I've mentioned before that I've been pining for my very own flock of backyard chickens for a while now...we thought that this was the year. My daughter even picked out the names (Marigold for one!) for our yet to be born half dozen brood. Things got hectic, as life does, and the chickens were put on hold for another year but I've been painting them...and it is so much fun. I love learning about all the breeds. This girl is a buff orpington, known for their friendly, docile demeanor.
