Portraits Of Siouxsie

I recently did a Skype visit to a classroom in Wisconsin from the Big Barn. Those students know my chickens! Yesterday, I got a packet of letters from them. By far the most popular hen to draw was Siouxsie. Here are a few of the portraits:

I think that these artists have captured Siouxsie’s spirit perfectly. Don’t you?


This one gives me the hankering to dye Siouxsie’s top knot pink!


To answer the letter writer’s question: I have written a book about Pip and Caper. I’m trying to find a publisher!


  1. Super sweet. Hope you get the story about Hannah and the solstice published also. Great pics, kiddos!!!!!

  2. So adorable! Thanks for what you do and thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I can’t wait to be able to purchase your book about Pip and Caper!
    By the way, my little goat brothers, B.B. and Lee, are doing great!

  4. Ha Ha Ha, So cute, My favorite is the one with red eyes and the black and yellow feather doo.

  5. That is so amazing! I hope you get a publisher on this ASAP!

  6. Loved to see the children’s pictures of my favorite hen, Siouxsie! Thanks again for sharing! You made my day! ;)

  7. Siouxsie’s the “comeback hen story”! I was happy to hear she got a reprieve. Love those pictures from the class, anyone would make a terrific T shirt design.

  8. What a treasure you have in those drawings. I’d have them framed in one large frame and hang them up. Siouxsie has grabbed my heart. She seems to be spending her days inside hiding and now not even sleeping with the other girls. Of course Buffy seems to be a different chicken since Siouxie was moved. They pretty much act like us human hens do sometimes.

  9. I love artwork by children! I think a Siouxsie t-shirt would be fun, too. Maybe t-shirts for Team Buffy or Team Siouxsie. I pray you can find a publisher. As a pre-k teacher I can tell you that plenty of bad books get published and I am always looking for quality. You are true quality and I thank you for that.

  10. These are great! Thank for your sharing. Perhaps you could self publish. I’ll be the first to buy it regardless of who publishes it :-)

  11. These are terrific! I’m still smiling. Par nar nar.
