In Defense of Roosters

In Defense of Roosters

Seedmother DOES NOT ask for donations.

Seedmother is really an artist and commercial illustrator who happens to have an affinity for "chicken life". Chickens inspire my art and I want to share my appreciation of them with others who feel the same way. I have created an array of quality novelty products for the enjoyment of alektorophiles. (I made that up, alektorophobia means fear of chickens so I constructed a logical antonym/neologism).

If that sentiment and my artistic expression strikes your fancy as an effort worth supporting, I appreciate your business. But regardless, please enjoy, read the stories and maybe share a laugh or a tear. The stories are anthropomorphized but largely true, although, I've taken a few liberties with the chronology.

It's best to read the episodes from oldest to newest if this is your first visit.

Creating "Costco"

Chickendad seemed on a mission to create his own personal "Costco" to supply all of our food needs, protein in the form of eggs and (Seedmother is not quite ready for this one yet, but yeah, birds for meat) And lots of greens and veggies from the garden. He was driven by the thought of having all that food on hand to single handedly, plow through those mountains of ruins and vine. He bought a chipper to process the vines and created a huge heap of refined golden mulch, added chicken poop (store bought for starters) and wrapped it all up in a tarp to cook. He organized the debris to be repurposed for construction projects.
In record time he liberated a 30X80 ft. area of the most fertile, rain forest leaf drop, composted soil you've ever seen. Gorgeous black stuff full of earthworms, centipedes, beetles and other bug protein. Three weeks under a tarp to sterilize it and the gardens would be ready to plant.

Where was Seedmother? Peeling mangos…
