The Falconer by VendelRus The Falconer by VendelRus
Well....as you can see this is really not a falcon.

This is (from what I heard) an "Öland dwarf hen" named "Knubbe". Someone told me that they were supposed to be extinct but he seemed fine to me...

I'm wearing my Rus trading kit in this pic. The careful observer might see that I have a few modifications to my costume. First of all I have my knew Birka Lyre bag (the small bag to the left). I also have some new bronze knitting embroidery on my collar and some new belt studs. More about these new upgrades later =)

As far as I know this chicken breed was nearly extinced but today there should be several hundreds of them again, but it is still a rare breed.

Hiiiiuuuh...I'm so glad we cleared that up. It's good to know that the breed of small, angry and slightly arrogant chicken guys are not leaving this world anytime soon. I'd hate to lose those guys :) Knubbe....where ever you are...I love you :heart:

Small chicken breeds have their very own character. I myself have "Sebright".

It's a really, really nice garb. And the hen is such a nice touch :)

I think it's indeed an Öland dwarf hen, it looks very much like one at least.

I think if you present this again you should wear a falconer's glove. You need to protect yourself from those dangerous claws and vicious beak! :)

I'm so happy to see this concept realized - years ago I wanted to create a falconer character with a chicken as falcon. You and your bird are quite grand!
