If you’d just like to learn how to draw a chicken that is a little more on the colorful side, and not just mostly white, then this new tutorial will help. It shows students where they can add some extra details which can all be filled with fun colors and spots. In real life, those feathers and spots are rather intricate, and might look like they are tricky to draw. That’s why tutorials can help so much, as they simplify those shapes, and show how to draw them one step at a time.

Chickens were first known as the “bird that gives birth every day” in 15th-century BC Egypt, and humans have been keeping chickens primarily for their egg producing abilities ever since.
