This is a watercolor, acrylic painting of our house that I painted for my mom’s birthday (it was a day late). I started out with watercolors, but the I ran out, so I used my acrylics and made the watery. lol
This one of the Arabian is one of my new favorites. :)
I drew my bantam chicken laying on her nest because it has a neat story to go with it. My silly chicken, Nugget, has been laying on this nest for about a month or more and underneath her has been a golf ball. We put it there to encourage her to lay her own eggs, but she didn’t get it and just sat on the ball.
Well a week ago I was talking to a friend and she told me about her ducks and how her and her husband had just got a drake. However they didn’t want their girls to sit on the eggs, because they eat their eggs (the humans). So I asked about getting a few from her for my hen to lay on. My friend liked the idea and brought some over.
Oh my gosh I have never seen this little hen as mad as when I pulled the golf ball out from underneath her! I tried holding her so I could put the eggs on the nest, without loosing my hand haha. Well I got three on the nest then I lost control of the angry, little Nugget. She ran to the nest box, but I still had one more egg. Though I didn’t think it’d fit being as the eggs were about three times the size of a bantam’s egg. I placed the egg in front of her nest to see what she thought about it and to my surprise she rolled it under her and fluffed herself up to cover up all of the four duck eggs!
So now we shall see if my silly hen gets to be a Mom to four ducklings. :)
