I wrote this track about my chicken, Frida.
It was such a privilege to look after her little life.

Every instrument on this track was created from her flapping, cooing and bawking.

I've included the lyrics so everyone can see what the song was about.

My beautiful black chicken.
May I see you in fields of corn when I finally lay to rest.

lyrics

She grew up in the porch on the house
Black feathers catching wind beneath the roof
Sometimes she steps on the magazines
Slipping over and on her food, it's the truth

It's Frida. She's enough to make you smile
It's Frida. She's enough to make you smile

She takes cover from the pouring rain
Morning song can wake the dead if they sleep
Scratching her way out of her cage
Corn cobs bring a smile with a peep

It's Frida. She's enough to make you smile
It's Frida. She's enough to make you smile

She dreams of flying high on days when all the clouds greet her.
She soars past them on giant gusts of winds so fast.
