Feeding the chickens in the snow drawing. It looks like a bitter cold morning but the chickens have to be fed nonetheless even in the heart of winter. A few wild birds gather around the chickens to get a bit of free breakfast too. In this public domain bird image, a young woman feeds her chickens from the grain she carries in her apron. This image is fairly large at 528 by 600 pixels but might look a bit better if you shrink it with a good image editing program.
This February 10th, 1880 edition of Harper’s Young People had a number of wonderful drawings, including this one.
