This is a watercolour by Duncan Cooper that depicts the poultry house at Challicum, a sheep run west of Ballarat in western Victoria. Two of the Djapwurrong people (the Indigenous inhabitants of this region) are shown sitting by a smoking fire next to a temporary bark shelter. Various chickens are also shown pecking in the grass in front of the poultry house, which is shaded by two established gum trees. The watercolour, which measures 12.8 cm x 19.3 cm, is the seventh watercolour included in a field album that Cooper called 'The Challicum Sketch Book'.
