A Fowl Family

A Hen and two chicks

Instincts are amazing. Bits of compiled code that run the little wet processor in a chicken's head. Chickens don't need anyone to teach them to take care of themselves.

I found this drawing in an old sketchbook. I liked the look of the hen, and the chicks. I especially liked the one on the right. At first I made the mama a white chicken, but as I added color and texture I liked the yellow-gold better. Digital art is easy to change, I can always do something different later.

Our grand boys have chickens, but they don't look like this. And the hens don't have any chicks, but they lay a lot of eggs. Which we help eat. So much for instincts.
