More chickens

This late-19th century rug came up for auction in 2006, but the site doesn't tell us what price it fetched. I love the diagrammatic treatment of the chicken - sort of like one of those "cuts of meat" diagrams you see at the butchers - and the large-scale oak leaves. Not to mention that pink isn't usually a colour you associate with poultry! The white line under the chicken's beak makes all the difference, don't you think?
Something more modern (from this blog) -- could it be some of Henny Penny's friends?
A patriotic chicken rug up for auction.
And finally, for now, the 1865 rug was made by Diane and seen on this blog.
