Hello everyone😊😊. I hope you will enjoy the little story about this family. I painted this picture from a photo of Mr Chiam’s hens and a single cockerel. They were all feeding from a single tray. I thought, what a lovely family. Hence the inspiration for my painting😄😄.
Mr Nori is the rooster on the left-hand side of the painting. His wife Suri is the beautiful chick on the top left-hand side chatting with Mora. Mora is from a different breed of white chicks🙂. The more petite brownish yellow chick is the daughter of Mr Nori and Suri. Her name is Surina, and the two chicks near her are her daughters, Merina and Purina.
In this picture, I see aspects of their lives akin to ours😊. Mr Nori seems hesitant, appearing perplexed about what his wife Suri is talking to Mora. Suri and Mora seem to have an animated conversation pleasantly. Any thoughts on that conversation? Maybe a discount sale is going on🤔🤔? Or could it be a hen laid strange coloured eggs? Surina is focused, checking the food for her daughters. She is not distracted by the animated conversation. Somehow, this picture reminded me of how we humans behave. In a shopping mall, men usually are never interested😒 unless it is something they wish to buy. Women love to shop, especially when there is a bargain or sale😄😄. Surina appears like a new mother who would love to purchase exciting stuff for her daughters😍😍.
I would love to hear from you. This story is purely my imagination; as you know, no rooster can be monogamous😎. Many of you commented that it is unfair that one husband has three wives in my painting. Hence, I wrote this story of Mr Nori, who is monogamous😉. In addition, many of you could relate to this painting as our grandmothers had chickens running around, creating noise and mayhem😒😤. As a young girl, I was petrified because the bigger hens and roosters loved to chase me😢😢. One of you had commented why there are only two little chicks. My reply was that because of inflation, Surina decided it was better to have less than more chicks😅😉.
I hope you can share your thoughts here on your adventures with hens and roosters. Maybe, some thoughts on Mr Nori’s predicament would be interesting😊. Till the next musings, have fun having wild musings😊🙏.
