Kicking off our showcase of art donated to The Mother Hen Project #3 with this delightful original pen & ink drawing by Riana who is just 9 years old. I was amazed when she offered to donate it for our Chicks In Crisis fundraiser. Such a beautiful and inspiring piece by such a young talented artist. Hoping that more children are inspired to donate artwork this year. Thank you Riana!
What of the hens whom we observe each day at home, with what care and assiduity they govern and guard their chicks? Some let down their wings for the chicks to come under; others arch their backs for them to climb upon; there is no part of their bodies with which they do not wish to cherish their chicks if they can, nor do they do this without a joy and alacrity which they seem to exhibit by the sound of their voices.
