We have some small chickens, which are called bantams or 'krielkippen' in Dutch. They became tame during the years and it is obvious that they have their own personality; anxious, bold or sweet. The eggs are delicious. They are allowd to grow old with us, even when the egg-production has stopped.
In hard times they comfort me, just feeding them, see how they respond and always are there, just like a pet.
So it was hard to discover that "Witje-1" died. We buried her in our chicken-graveyard.
I decided it was time to make a chicken-collage. As you can see the chicken is passing the line to the, I hope, sweet Nothing. I managed to make it in two days, that is a record for me.
So thanks to Witje, our sometimes fearful and mostly brave chicken.
