Day 10: flowing

That there is a Poland cockerel. Or a Polish rooster. Same thing, different languages. I want one of these beasties in the worst way.

I bought six ‘fertilized’ eggs this year that should have included at least one Poland and stuck ’em under a broody hen. All six: duds.

“You there! Look alive! Tote that barge! Lift that bale! Polish those roosters you parish rigged bums! Argghhh! Arghhhh!”

Beautiful bird, lovely plumage! Kinda what an Napoleonic French Imperial Rooster Guard would probably look like.


Pity you aren’t doing color, they’re beautiful birds.

When I see one of these chickens, I always think of actress Carol Channing in her role as Dolly Levi in the musical Hello Dolly.

Today’s drawing is my favorite 🙂

That’s a cool lookin’ breed. It’s remarkable what forms feathers can take in birds.

The boys look like that, with the spikes. The girls have big, soft, round, poofy afros.

Big fan of sexual dimorphism. Big, big fan.

Love the chicken drawrings… but are you going to be able to feature Jack, Charlotte, or Newbie in your competitive striving?

I need another dick to add to my collection of chicken sketches in my kitchen bay window.

According to Vox.com you should have done some witchy spell on the eggs and then they would turn out all right. Hooray for “Science”!

My sister has polish. Her boy, Goliath, is an asshole. A very handsome asshole, but an asshole. He struts, he crows, he struts some more. The girls with their topknots sigh.
