Banka Mundi teaching the chickens how to lay an egg.
We had bought 4 chooks for in our backyard. We had them for 4 weeks and they were still not laying eggs. So I decided to make a painting; Banka Mundi, the T-Rex, teaching the chooks how to lay an egg. Next day….the chooks were laying eggs! Serious!
