Description

The Literary Chicken Calendar is in it's 13th year.* Now a selection of these images and quotes are available as greeting cards. I have looked through the years and picked out some highlights to bring back for purposes of correspondence and conversation.

If you do not see a particular favorite of yours that you would like to have on a greeting card, let me know and I can make it for you.

This card features the F. Scott Fitzgerald quote:

“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”

If Fitzgerald is correct, the chicken has an advantage over humans. With her two eyes on opposite sides of her head, seeing two different things most of the time, she is frequently having to hold two opposed ideas in her mind and still be able to function. Maybe this isn't exactly what he meant, but here, Scratch considers the possibilities while looking both forward and at her own behind.

These are 5x7 inch cards, blank on the inside, and come with envelopes. Cards are shipped via USPS First Class Mail, unless they are ordered along with a calendar, in which case they will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
