Little GREEN Hen - sruble

The prompt for the CBIG blog this month is green, and the prompt for Illustration Friday this week is detective. I thought that any literary detective worth his salt would wonder where green eggs came from, and if he used his sleuthing skills, he’d come up with the answer.

Green eggs come from green chickens. It’s the only thing that makes sense.

The chicken that lays green eggs.

The chicken that lays green eggs.

The next question the detective should answer, is which came first, the green chicken, or the green eggs? (I think the green chicken came first. What do you think?)

p.s. The prompt for WaWe this week was The Little Red Hen. Hmm, I’m thinking that history got it wrong. It was really The Little GREEN Hen!

A green hen???? Now that's brilliant and funny! I love it. Such a wonderful character and a very fresh take on the story for sure. This is wonderful!

Thank you Ann and Vanessa!

Okay, I love riddles, especially if they come from a chicken! My guess is, if I look very closely in to your image (the left top corner to be exactly) the green eggs come from space!?!? Great job by the way! :)

Thanks Leen! BTW, you are the only one to ask if green eggs come from space - good catch!
