The Adventures of Alice the Phallus
I believe there were 11 Baby chicks all of them named by the owner, but, as they got older Alice turned out to be a Cockerel! Hence the unusual name. He was a very kind and considerate bird quite responsible and proud, as you can see in the picture.
He was featured in a friends blog the owner of the farm:
I think he became quite the mascot for them.
Then came a challenge from Daily paintworks:
For a painting of a chicken which I decided to enter as we didn't have any birds of our own, I thought of Alice so he became my project I was able to get a copy of him from the blog and managed a reasonable 6x6 oil painting.
Unfortunately I realized I hadn't asked permission to obtain the picture sending an apology and suggested if she would like Alice I would ship him to her when the paint was dry. I was surprised at the quick response and the word was Yes!
So at the moment Alice is on his way back home to Oregon
I must say I haven't made him beautiful my skills need a little honing in the Art dept. but it makes me happy knowing he will be welcomed home very soon.
