"Chickens" is a work created about 1945 during Walter Anderson’s residence at Oldfields, a farm near Gautier, Mississippi, and the composition exemplifies his work of that period.

Like other paintings from his Oldfields period, "Chickens" reflects a stylized approach in which Anderson attempts to merge man, nature, and art. This work typifies the sense of control, balance, and even harmony that Anderson is able to achieve in his works during this time.
