Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art

One of the most common and widespread domestic animals, chickens have been providing meat and eggs for humans for at least 5000 years. In fact, there are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird. From the backyard to the table, chickens have played an important role in the culture of the Eastern Shore for generations. This exhibit in the Welcome Gallery will examine the history of this staple of farm life and traditional foodways through art, archival photographs and ephemera, and oral histories and folklore. – www.wardmuseum.org
