The work consists of five live chickens and a wooden 0.5m3 chicken coop. This work was presented during the 2015 AKI fine art media exhibition. The animals were left roaming the exhibition space freely and were continuously present for the entire duration of the event.

An unavoidable correlation between the wandering group of hens and the rest of the works in the space was created in the process.

As the animals passed through by each work one could argue them to be observing visitors. Their clucking hinted to the character of ladies discussing and appreciating what they saw.

The result of the project was that the animals were to be removed from the exhibition after four days. This on the ground of both possible ethical and medical reasons.
Visitors nor chickens measured to experience no indication of such issues.
