Fantasy Flock by Hippopottermiss Fantasy Flock by Hippopottermiss
A flock of multicoloured chickens made for a customer this summer.

They're for sale at a restaurant, which acts as a gallery too, in the Loire Valley. It amuses me that I'm selling totally inedible chickens to a very smart restaurant :D

:bulletgreen: If you like my work maybe you’d like to visit my website gallery [link] :bulletgreen:
:bulletred: My ceramic animals are on facebook too [link] and Google+ [link] :bulletred:

Il serait dommage de les sé;parer... Toutes en groupe ainsi, elles sont adorables ! ça me rappelle vraiment le poulailler qu'il y avait à côté de chez moi :)

Il y avait des poules chez nous aussi - mais dans la cour pas dans un poulailler. Mon client avait bien l'intention de les revendre donc ils seront é;parpiller je ne sais pas où maintenant.

I've just got a couple of little chickens for my garden & your flock shows how delightfully silly chickens are. I love them.

Maybe it shows that I used to have chickens too :)
I used to love watching them strutting and pecking around the courtyard :)
Enjoy yours :hug:

I can't afford to eat there but they invited me to lunch when I delivered the chickens.
