A Day in the Life of Blue Chicken***

IMG_2171Up early, Blue Chicken gets the “lay” of the land, while Doris, her coop-mate, looks on in awe.

IMG_2183Before anything else, she checks her email and Facebook.

IMG_2174Occasionally she needs to spend some time with 4-leggeds.

IMG_2181IMG_2186After taking a leak, it’s back to the studio to work on Jerry’s Map.

IMG_2169The coop is cozy enough for roosting, but it’s a little early for bed.

IMG_2196Blue 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.
