Instead the chickens decided to stand in a line in the entrance of the farm, with one hen holding a paper protesting, the hens do not seem very happy per the illustration. What is interesting is that the stool which the farmer uses to milk the cows is upside down and the buckets are also upside and stacked on top of each other. This gives an image of how the hens are switching the game, the stool and buckets are upside down because they are showing that there will be no supply of milk and egg.
