My parents bought be the chicken from an artist up in Seattle - I will try and get her name. She started making these really decorative chickens and then started doing chalkboard chickens which is what has sold the best. :-)
I am glad that you are enjoying your chicken. Thanks for the mention on your site.
We are the people that currently make the chalkboard chickens. We bought the business from Lynn Dinino (the original artist) in 2000. You can go to our website (www.chalkboardchickens.com) and see the places we sell to. If you don’t live next to one of our galleries, you can always contact us and special order one.
Erich - my mom and dad LOVE the chickens. Dad even commissioned Lynn to create a customized version for the birth of the first grandson in our family - a chicken sitting down with tennisshoes holding an egg (a decade ago). My friend Diana has an OLD version of the chicken Lynn created for a woman-run art show in Seattle about two decades ago. As my friend said “every goto has a chicken.” it is part of the family tradition. Nice to have the link to the chicken site!
