Today I bring you two painting recolours with some lovely livestock to liven up your sims lives!

These illustrations are from the Biggle Poultry Book: A Concise and Practical Treatise on the Management of Farm Poultry (yes that's really the full title) written by Jacob Biggle and published in 1895, showcasing different breeds of poultry. 16 presets are included. Breed names are in the MTS image descriptions (at the bottom left, next to the image size).

And the other set is from (get ready for it) the Biggle Cow Book: Old Time and Modern Cow-Lore Rectified, Concentrated and Recorded for the Benefit of Man (I swear I'm not making this up). 8 presets are included.

These paintings are BG compatible, the frame is cloned from a painting from Generations and is fully CASTable.

In the catalogue cows are called "Biggle Cow Book" and the poultry "Biggle Poultry Book". Both cost $400 and are in Decor/Wall Hangings

The original illustrations are all in the public domain. Scans are from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (Poultry and Cows).

The wonderful as always heaven once again saved my bacon on these!

Thanks as well to MissPat who helped me with the French description for the cows.
