Happy Chickens--Set of 5 Cards and Envelopes by scrappyrat's shop

I was inspired by International Respect for Chickens Day to make this set of cards featuring chickens and butterflies. Matching chickens with a symbol of freedom reflects my hope for a world where these birds can be free to spread their wings, interact freely with others of their species, and be valued as individual beings.
I have a large selection of EFA Charity of the Month designated items. I also work as a foster volunteer for Carolina Pet Rescue, helping care for small animals like rats, hamsters, chinchillas, etc. depending on where I'm needed. On special occasions, such as world rat day, I also do 50% days when I not only donate 100% of the charity items to EFA, I donate 50% of the sales of all my other handmade items to a designated animal charity.
