Icelandic Chickens Sheep and Goats

I have taken a fancy to Icelandic Chickens.  This is Egil the Rooster in charge at Mack Hill Farms in NH, and always ready to tell everyone when to wake up, when to get to work, and when it's time to quit for the day.  You can see some wonderful videos of Egil Crowing, and having a good time on the farm.  Some new puppies were born at Mack Hill Farms and it's no surprise they also raise Icelandic Sheepdogs, and Icelandic Sheep.  The farming spirit is alive and well in America, and there are wonderful small farms raising heritage chickens and heritage sheep, and growing heritage vegetables.  Visit Lisa
at out her store, and all the beautiful yarns she sells.  Watch her parade of Geese, ducks, dogs, pigs, chickens, and enjoy the fun of watching her videos on the farm.  The new puppies are darling, and I really appreciate Lisa letting me paint from her beautiful photos.  Support your local farms, buy from the farm fresh produce stands, and try to be kind and generous each and every day.  Life is too short, and it's sure easier to be kind than mean spirited.  I've already started another picture of the Noble Egil and his favorite hen, and I've drawn up some more paintings to be of Keikur.  The world of chickens and people is a world of diversity, and I do enjoy painting all the colors of the rainbow.  Every one take care of your loved ones, and treasure the moments we share.  Thank you and Good night!
