Who Put The Chicken in the Tree?

I live in an area filled with cherry, apricot, orange, fig, peach, apple, persimmon, and chicken trees.  Wait!  What did I just say?  Chicken trees?

Yes, chicken trees!  Brigette’s friends, Dan & Teresa were wondering what was happening to their persimmons.  Now they know!  These are their chickens in their persimmon tree! Photo courtesy of Dan & Teresa!

If I ever design a quilt with chickens in a tree you’ll know where I got the inspiration!

Counting down to 2011 with a smile!

  • Cynthia - Yes, I do know about chickens in trees. LOL!

    Many years ago, my parents came home to find a chicken in the tree outside their side door. Now, they lived in a small town but they did not have any farms near them. They never did figure out where the chicken came from.

    What happened to the chicken? He disappeared. They thought the chicken had moved on but they did find a small pile of feathers in the yard so the chicken might have ended up as dinner. :-(

    Loved the picture!

Your comment and Nancy C’s comment about Chickens in a Persimmon Tree is a pretty creative idea. I guess it’s true – you just never know where you might find inspiration!! :)
