#243 Beyond my window: Roosters, con't . . .

Today's post is an original hand-tinted etching of one of my favorite subjects:  roosters, chickens, and domestic poultry. The image shows a Dominick Rooster chasing a hen.  My grandmother raised domestic poultry on her farm in Arkansas and she always had a "dominecker" - as she called them - rooster.  Not only did the aggressive critter chase hens but he also chased little children.  As a kid, I was terrified of the big bird and always carried a stick to herd him off if he came my way.  Today I have a Bantam Rooster, and he also chases me.
