The Little Chicken was sent by me, Jill, to Ann Feldman of Illinois, who took her on a vacation with her to Quebec:

Hello Fellow Traveling Chicken friends!
Here's the latest on the traveling Troop of Chickens: They arrived here in Chicago a few weeks ago from Jill's house. The Little Yellow Chicken (or Le Petite Poulet as she is known in Quebec) accompanied me to Quebec City and Montreal for a week of sightseeing and listening to jazz at the International Jazz Festival. Her feathers were a bit ruffled after she got re-routed to Newark for one night when the suitcase she was tucked into went to Quebec via the scenic route! I tried to explain to her that it was for her own good that she spent the night in a sturdy shoe. But all was very well after she was placed into many beautiful flower boxes for her portrait. She even managed to be captured in a couple of toy store windows and restaurant table setups. As her temporary host mom, I've been busy painting away, finishing up these little paintings now that we're home.
I have a painting to share with you, below. Doesn't she look happy there? She is a wonderful travel companion, and she picks up new languages quite easily-- "Le Clucque" is her favorite new phrase!
Thanks so much for entrusting the little troop to me-- it was great fun spending time with them!!!
