I’m not the only person who likes chicken motifs. The panorama of goods that feature hens, roosters, baby chickens – even eggs – says that these items have their fans. Count me in!
Chickens have some history in my family. One of my grandfathers raised and showed bantams. Other ancestors were farmers for many generations. Even if farming wasn’t like Little House on the Prairie, those items have a romance about them, from stories of the old days.
It comes naturally for me to have a collection of chicken things to display at home. I like the unusual, the whimsical – or offbeat, “slightly cracked,” in a manner of speaking. Or, anything else I like, period. They say if you choose things you like, your collection will go together.
In any case, a theme motif is one way to tie a collection together.
