Number 17 in a 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

"Japanese Bantam"
6" x 6"
oil on Raymar canvasboard
NFS

This is a painting of MY (1) rooster, Queenie.  He is a Banty Rooster, very comical and quite ditzy - but I suppose a lot of roosters are.  They have only two purposes, as I see it...to give morning and/or warning crows and to help with fertilization of the eggs (we collect each day's eggs so that isn't happening) - but we get a kick out of him just the same. 
He is way smaller than my large Sussex hen 
(painting of chick, a few days back is 'she'), 
and she puts up a fight 
every time he begins his 'love' dance. 
Don't tell him - but he's a follower, not a leader....

Queenie appears to have an identity problem. Ditzy? Maybe it is "his" name?
Anyway love the painting and love the name. Fun!

Thanks Julie! WE call him 'Ditz' sometimes.
