 I am participating in the Winter Nerd Battles
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429436.0#axzz2sSxgsNvA
and it is SO much fun. We get challenges each month and try to make projects fit each one. In January we had a challenge called "Put a bird on it" and our project had to contain a bird of some sort or something bird related (feathers, eggs, ect). It is up to you to interpret it as you will.
 I am terrified of three things, heights, my Dad's driving and birds. Just thinking of this challenge sent a shiver up my spine! I tried to think of a nonthreatening bird but since those are only urban legends I went for a less threatening bird. Or at least I tried too. I have been informed that chickens are quite vicious actually. Who knew? Not me because I am not getting near them!

 Here was my offering. I call her Lila and the Chicken. My husband says it's a rooster. LOL! Again, not getting close enough to check.

 Hope you like her. I think later on I may try to do something else with the background. Smooth it out or something. Not sure.  Tongue
 Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous as always!  Did you use a photo of a chicken to draw from?

 Yeah. I realized I had no idea what a chicken really looked like. Then again, it may be a rooster.  Tongue

Beautiful!  On a personal note, I like chickens.  Hoping to have some of my own some day.

It's not the hens you have to worry about, it's the roosters.  They're the ones that can have a nasty attitude and turn on you.

lovely!  Wonderful job on the terrifying chicken/rooster too Smiley

I've been attacked by both roosters and chickens that my parents kept years ago....they always seemed to have an issue with my flowered leggings and red rubber boots Roll Eyes
