A good friend has several grandchildren who are quite active in 4H activities and I tease the youngest about her show chickens. I had the idea to do a carving of a young girl at a county fair, carrying showmanship to an extreme! If a dog is man’s best friend, then perhaps a young girl’s best friend is a chicken?!??? Hope it makes you smile! Thanks for looking!

I thought I lived way out in the sticks, but I’ve never seen anyone walking a chicken on a leash before. You’ve got a lot of great carvings in your projects. This one looks like one of your most interesting!

Love the title!! And what’s not to like about the carving?! Very well done, shows a lot of character and passion. Really great and fun piece.

Very wonderful carving, but if you show this one to the youngest you have been teasing, your carving
may just have a new owner. Thank you for sharing.

I like this, I’m not quite sure why, but I like this. A lot.
