Red Rooster Resting

A very red rooster living on a farm in New South Wales, Australia is taking a rest from his daily activities during the afternoon. His feathers were a lovely dark red and had a beautiful shine as if he conditioned them with hair conditioner.

Will You Marry Me ?

A very red rooster and a speckled hen living on a farm in New South Wales, Australia. The rooster's feathers were a lovely dark rich red and had a beautiful shine as if he conditioned them with hair conditioner. I loved the speckled hen with all the texture and varying colors in her feathers. I couldn't resist adding the speech bubble with the hen asking the rooster - Will You Marry Me? There were numerous other hens that lived on the same property and I felt this one was jealous! Just adds a bit of comedy to this chicken portrait. I would like to give credit to Jai Johnson for the wonderful texture overlay used in the background. For more of her beautiful textures, please visit - jaiart.com/thedailytexture
