Chicken Love

From JH:

If I could, I’d keep a coop of my own, but because my life isn’t conducive to raising farm animals, yet, I stare longingly at picture books devoted to beautiful chickens, instead. Extraordinary Chickens by Stephen Green-Armytage has been a longtime favorite of mine. Then, today, I discovered The Fairest Fowl: Portraits of Championship Chickens by Ira Glass (author) and Tamara Staples (photographer). NPR’s Ira Glass on prize-winning chickens? His humor and heart are rivaled only by Staples’s exquisite pics:

p.s. Total coincidence––the NY Times has a story about a chicken-raising children’s book author and her home in the Berkshires today. Read it here. See the slideshow here.
