A huge part of Royal Bird is the Hardfeather poultry stud that I created from scratch around 10 years ago, this new Instagram page will be a great opportunity to show off some of our most brilliant fowls. We show under the name J & L Bezzina’s Game Stud, however trade under the Royal Bird banner. To start things off; OLD ENGLISH GAME, Bantam, 1st year cock, partridge spangle. Has already bread well for us this year. #royalbird#OEGbantam#championcock
strange fun fact: As a result of a tradition dating back to the eighteenth century (but it's much older than that) the Queen owns all the unmarked swans in the country and it is illegal to hunt them. Every year in summer, "Swan uppers" perform a ritualised census of swans and they salute the Queen as "Seigneur of Swans"

This piece is tall and somewhat narrow, so swipe for the tail! It is loosely based on a Harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) and Indian peafowl (Pavo cristatus).
Inktober 30 & 31: Little birdie uwu & long line. Super long line.
I forgot to include some important explanatory text below the first image: “Due to some poorly reviewed 11th hour changes to the throne inheritance rules by the late eccentric king, his pet canary was now the king.” That’s a wrap!! Thanks for watching these come out, and telling me you’ve enjoyed them- it kept me going! Inktober is tough!
I’m planning to create a little zine of all these drawings. Let me know if you want one!

For many centuries, mute swans in Britain were domesticated for food, with individuals being marked by nicks on their webs (feet) or beaks to indicate ownership. These marks were registered with the Crown and a Royal Swanherd was appointed. Any birds not so marked became Crown property, hence the swan becoming known as the "Royal Bird". It is quite possible that this domestication saved the swan from being hunted to extinction in Britain. #wikipedia 📷:@jessergordon#thetweetsuites#muteswan#royalbird#waterbird#goosedownpillow#beautyrest#birdsofinstagram
