Jem by Jenny Heidewald

Prompt: Jem
prompted by: Jenny Heidewald, during Sketch Fest #122 (July, 2020)

So the story behind this is last year my mom and I got sapphire gem chicks, they were mislabled as "Sapphire Gem olive eggers". Because there were two, and they are grey ( "blue" in the chicken world) I named Mom's Smoke, and mine Mirrors. Never really quite clicked, then Smoke passed away. :( FF to this month, we discovered it really WAS the Sapphire gem laying theh uuger eggs we'd been trying to hatch for months ( they keep failing to get to hatching : ( ), but we finally, FINALLY got one to hatch out under a broody hen! Grey like the genetic momma when she was young. So Mom referred to "Mirrors" as "Gem" one day, and that made me think of "Jem" the 80's cartoon rocker. So that combined with my desire to draw a glamour chicken "photo". :D So the spelling is "Jem" now, and I named her chick, wait for it, "Jemboree". :D it's probably a roo... *lol*
