    I remember seeing a front cover of a young woman with an apron (looking like Little House on the Prairie) with her buff chickens around her. Can anyone look up the artist name and see if there is any posters available of that painting?

    I would love to have that for my kitchen! [​IMG]

    I think the front cover I remember is probably 2005 or so.....anyone that kept their old catalogs would be able to find it easily.

    I can ask McMurray about it but if anyone has an old issue of Mcmurray catalogs, I am sure you know what it was LOL! I love their paintings on front covers.

    I know how you feel. I once searched for the cover that had "The Brave One" on it. It was the one with the little white rooster crossing the creek, with all the other chickens watching him. Found it, but wouldn't or couldn't pay what they were asking for it.
