As Spring effortlessly arrives in the rest of the country and chicken owners clean their coops from Winter's demise, here in Montana we see a much more gradual change. We still have snow on the ground at Poultry Haus Headquarters and frost in the mornings. The chickens don't emerge from their abode until after 8 a.m., when the frost has turned to dew and the sun is fully shining. But as the snow melts, things are evolving and growing. Spring is trying to have sprung!
With the changing season and its freshness leaving an impression, I'd like to introduce a new idea sprouting in the Poultry Haus think tank: Poultry Queens. What is a Poultry Queen? She is a passionate, strong and powerful woman of eccentric poultry philosophy. Who is a poultry queen? She is you, me, and all our fellow poultry passionates in alter-ego form. Often, Poultry Queens exist in blue jeans, go to jobs, abide in the home and amongst friends and family; but when we are around our flock we become clucking leaders of our ladies of laying, and in our heads we have a self portrait of what we REALLY look like. For example, The Poultry Haus logo was derived from my inner Poultry Queen. She is a sassy, spunky, sexy, blonde bombshell pin-up cow-girl who rides, galavanting around, on the back of a chicken. You know, crazy chicken lady alter-ego! Quite the scene, I know, but from that alter-ego, my love for my chickens has flourished. Poultry Haus, Chicken Bangles, and all my eccentric enthusiasm have come from "her." So what does your inner Poultry Queen look like?
Without further ado, Poultry Haus would like to share photos from the first ever Poultry Queen photo shoot. The historical and unconventional figure Marie Antoinette and the stark snowy-white beauty of early Spring in Montana was our inspiration for this curated shoot. For the love of chickens, allow me to introduce Marie Antoinette: Poultry Queen.
