Hi! Art student here with a Unique request/inquiry!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi ya'll :)

 

My name is Matt. I am a university art student and, for my 2016 art project (completing in the fall semester), I am looking to acquire deceased small animals. I live in Virginia and would be able to travel anywhere in Virginia, Maryland, DC, or Pennsylvania. I have been asking around a few auction houses, etc., and have had little luck on acquiring these deceased small animals. This is what leads me here.

 

As this is BackYardChickens.com, what would be the best way to acquire deceased chickens for the project? (I am looking for other animals too) Is there a specific board on this forum that I can ask this [weird] request?

 

Without giving away too much detail, the project involves recreating past works of art (paintings, sculptures, etc.) with deceased animals instead.

 

Any advice on how to acquire such things?

Hi welcome-byc.gif

You could try asking on your state thread. They can be found here ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
Or by typing your state into the search box above. Threads for your area should come up.

Good luck in your search.

Hi Matt - Y/Coop has given you some good advice. Since theres normally a glut of roosters out there, that one you could do yourself. 

 

All the best

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
