I love this little fat hen - so full of character. I also like the background with the shapes which echo the feathers - very clever idea. Super stuff, Petra.

This is lovely Petra,

Nice plump hen Petra with a twinkle in her eye!

The colours complement each other beautifully and the little hen is plump and, as Thea says, so full of character.

Many thanks Thea, Karyl, Louise and Marjorie, I really appreciate all your comments.

I agree with everyone this Hen so brightly coloured against the cool grey background works superbly Petra, have today it is particularly well fed!

Thank you very much Ros, much appreciated
