Just Because I love hens and roosters… I think they are beautiful in the way they look, the way they move and the way they act – they have fabulous style. Besides loving the look of them, I also love their confident, blunt attitude. They strut around knowing exactly what they want and they certainly aren’t afraid to be themselves. They are the Iris Apfel’s of the animal world.
There are literally hundreds of breeds, and they all look different. Some have rich shades of gold, crimson, deep blue, sienna and teal feather colors, while others have a pattern, like the spotted one below.
I collect many different things, but I think roosters are my favorite. I have them all over my kitchen in one form or another – ceramic figurines, mugs, platters, dish towels, etc. And, if I could, I would have a slew of roosters and hens in my backyard just roaming freely. Cock-a-doodle-doo!
