    Hi. I am new here. i used to breed and show chickens in the early nineties.

    Someone from here purchased a buff cochin painting from me on ebay recently. asking if they could have permissionm to use it as their avatar. the answer is yes. [​IMG]

    I don't have chickens now. there are city laws against them where I live. But I do have a few pet/show pigeons, and rabbits, and other animals allowed in the city. I can raise rabbits and any type of small animal here. But no chickens. [​IMG]

    I plan to paint some more chicken paintings in the future. [​IMG]

    I used to have black minorcas, cochins, buff orpingtons, white and barred rocks, a lot of mixed breeds and banties, and a lot of purebred waterfowl.

    Also if anyone wants to see some paintings or have some comissions done my ebay user id is dixons_art.

    I'll have to go check out your paintings. I always wished I could draw or paint. But, I can't even draw a stick person without a ruler!!

    What kind of rabbits do you have? We are planning to get some New Zealands in a couple of weeks.

    I raise and show standard chinchillas(the bunnies not the rodent), thriantas, florida whites, and a few odds and ends mixed breeds. The standard chinchillas are the oldest breed of the chinchilla rabbits, and one of the rarest.

    I have raised newzealands as 4h market rabbits before. They are nothing but big babies. [​IMG] I wish i had room for them again. though if i add another breed it would be something rare. Like americans, or american chins.

    I should add I don't have chicken paintings up yet. But I could use some good refference photos. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Can't wait to see your chicken paintings! (You'll probably find some customers on here... Post what you have for sale on the buy-sell-trade section; if it's on eBay already, just add a link to your eBay ad).
