The Creative Coop with The Winter Chickens

The Creative Coop with The Winter Chickens

Inside the Coop, you'll meet Marta and Rory Paul. As spring chickens, she was a dorky orchestra girl and he was a guy in a band. Time has flown, and they have grown, into full feathered creative Winter Chickens. They love creativity, to talk it, sing it, and bring it, to you. The sweet mystical Muse, symphonies, rock, and blues, whatever you and the Chickens choose. Roost with them, and hatch your own creative eggs. You're off the clock, come join the flock!
