A Penchant for Chickens - but not in my Garden

This beauty was where I went to purchase the hostas. Karen tells me he is about 12 years old and he is a contender for those scrolls in the hoffman fabric collection. I have always had a thing about roosters and when I was doing intaglio printing they were a subject of some of my plates. I have often thought about doing one in textile art so maybe.........There are some wild ones in the park that sometimes come nto my garden which I am not so happy about. they are very large, like this fellow and I don't know where they have come from - obviously escaped from someone's chicken brood. They can be disastrous in the garden because they scratch out all the plants, usually the precious ones that I am trying to coax along
