  • The chicken is the closest living relative of the Tyrannosaurus Rex!
  • In the Middle Ages, chicken soup was believed to be an aphrodisiac.
  • The fear of chickens is known as Alektrophobia.

Recently, I read an interesting fact about chickens which made me want to create this artwork. Apparently, when a farmer buys a new chicken, he cannot just introduce it to the rest of the flock as they will view it as an invader and often peck it to death (hence the term "don't be henpecked") Instead, the farmer places the chicken in with all the rest while they are fast asleep. When they wake up, they do not notice the newcomer but believe it has been there all along as they did not see it arrive. The newcomer itself begins to believe it must have been there all the while!

Wouldn't we all sometimes like to be that newcomer who would need no introduction?:)
