Is anybody willing to provide photos of their chickens for references for my artwork?

    Hello everybody, I'm looking to gather photos of chickens to draw/paint, and hopefully showcase at a local art gallery in the future. I've visited local farms, and were able to get a few breeds -- Black Australorps, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Buff Plymouth Rocks, Pearl White Leghorns, and Ameraucanas to name a few...but I'm looking for more breeds, none in particular. I created this thread because I didn't want to start drawing/painting from peoples' photos without their permission. If anybody would like to share their photos with me, feel free to post them in this thread, or PM if you have any further questions. All I ask is that the photos of the chickens are full body, with good lighting. Thank you all in advance!

    I don't have any good "full body" pics, but do have some good ones of their heads

    This is my Black Australorp hen Violet. I think she is the most beautiful chicken in the world. (Also my avatar pic)

    I wouldn't mind doing chicken portraits! I've actually done a couple, which I have attached. What breeds are they? Feel free to send them over or PM them to me if you'd like.

    Marshmallow is a white cochin bantam and Muffin is a mouthful, Quail Antwerp Belgain D'Anver bantam. Her feathers are horrible.
