I’ve been having so much fun with my rabbits Yin and Yang (whom I introduced in my last post), that I’ve decided to add some chickens to my family as well: meet Tao the laid back Chinese silkie, and Pivo the perky Polish pullet!

Seeing that rabbits in space were such a riot, I was curious to find out what the chicken situation was. Turns out there is a veritable sub-culture of Chickens in Armour: a small but select selection of artwork, including two pieces by Croatian fantasy artist Milivoj Ceran, whom I have interviewed here on this blog earlier – and who may well have started off this whole chicken armour business with his inspired 2005 piece “Armoured Chicken of Doom”.
