How many times in the last five and a half years have we promised to never feature another animal artist?(3). And yet every time we threaten to abandon this rich category it just keeps pulling us back. And so it is with these painting chickens. Ink up the feet, step out on a few sheets of good quality paper and there you have it: high quality hen or possibly rooster art. As for the results, given that these are Chinese chickens, they are remarkably …. Chinese. The chickens' mentor, trainer and inker is the artist Xiao Hu as you know.
