Anyone who knows me knows that this blog is an act of love, as opposed to professional courtesy, mad money-making scheme, or career advancement. I am not as in love with chickens as say, Jason is.
But what I do love is the way chickens are so experiential and in the moment and I feel this is best summed up by the Chicktionary doll, Herbina, and the following cartoon. First a real-life photo of Herbina.
Herbina was named because I wanted to call her Herb and Jason said that’s the wrong name for a hen. But I also imagine her as being the polar opposite of Rufus Chicken, who always worries about everything.
In my mind, love is not merely blind, it is Herbina-like. Happy Valentine’s Day!
