It's not Picasso but a New Hampshire woman hopes a piece of art painted by a chicken will raise money to rebuild a playground.

The 8.5-by-10-inch painting called "Feathered Fireworks" is being auctioned on eBay.

Wendy Thomas of Merrimack says she created the piece by dipping the chicken's feet in paint then placing the hen on canvas.

A local television station said Thursday that bidding started at $9.99.

The proceeds will help rebuild the Kids Kove playground in Merrimack.
