Inspiration strikes in the most unpredictable places. It’s not that I disliked chickens and roosters before, I’d just never been especially fond of them (their eggs, on the other hand, I’ve always been unabashedly obsessed with)… that is, until I stumbled upon these photos from “The Magnificent Chicken.” One glimpse of the dramatic fowl and I was pinning one bird after another, and even reading up on raising backyard chickens and building a coop. Granted, my downtown loft doesn’t exactly lend itself to keeping a chicken flock, so for now I’m exercising my newfound fixation the only way I know how: a pretty mood board. So whether you’re a chicken lover or not so much, here’s hoping today’s feathery inspiration helps you kick off a happy Thanksgiving week.
