$100 plus shipping
A very short distance from his home at Giverny, Claude Monet had a chicken yard. The Foundation Monet continues this tradition and, like the artist, has a different breed of chickens each year. Monet loved to have fresh eggs available and the two egg boxes in the pantry could hold more than a hundred eggs. The flock consisted of mainly hens, with just a few roosters on hand.
This is from a photo I took on the grounds several years ago on a visit to Giverny.
All of the chickens appeared very content in their beautiful surroundings.
