Up early, Blue Chicken gets the “lay” of the land, while Doris, her coop-mate, looks on in awe.
Before anything else, she checks her email and Facebook.
Occasionally she needs to spend some time with 4-leggeds.
After taking a leak, it’s back to the studio to work on Jerry’s Map.
The coop is cozy enough for roosting, but it’s a little early for bed.
Blue Chicken’s no fool. She goes under the covers with Bubba, another 4 legged friend. Sweet dreams, you two.
***Blue Chicken is the handiwork of Leelanau County artist, Brad Ingraham, whose work is shown at Cog’s Creek Gallery, Traverse City, Michigan. She joined the flock at Fake Rock Farm last November for my husband, Jerry Gretzinger’s birthday.
