Chickens are Annoying

Chickens Sketch
I did a little bit of sketching while we were visiting Rosemary’s aunt and uncle who have quite a few animals around. The chickens were a bit frustrating to draw since they didn’t like to hold still, plus after a few minutes all the roosters decided to start crowing at me. Probably because:

Wondering how common this type of thing is, I tried searching for “iguana cowboy”. It just returned boots. And no, they didn’t have pictures of cattle-herding lizards on them.
