The Funnies - A Time for All Things (1910)

The Century Illustrated Magazine, May 1910

Strikes me as a typical Monday. Only on a day as evil as Monday would the chickens conspire to wait until the farmer has planted all his seeds before eating them. In case you wondered, "Chanticleer" is French for "one who sings clearly", therefore I guess it's a good enough name for a rooster.

Robert L. Dickey was an illustrator of some note, born in Marshall, Michigan in 1861 he was most well known for his renderings of dogs, birds, and horses.
