glamour chicks

Disclaimer:  If you’re into chicken life updates, then this post is for you.  If not, grab a stiff drink and laugh anyway.

I was flattered when Stephanie asked if my hens could be part of her Deja Vu shoot…and frankly a little curious to see how such a thing would work out.  A chicken fashion shoot was a new one for both of us!  Here we are with our fur and feather babies at her office.

The shoot went well and we all had a lot of laughs.  Stephanie treated them like queens – most of the time they were perched in Louis Vuittons or draped in Chanel necklaces, ha.  It went so smoothly that she had them come back again – this time for a video.  Maybe Chapeau should get an agent.

But before our little ladies leave home for a public appearance, there is always some prepping to do.  They are very, ahem, shall we say,”rustic” in their lifestyle.  So I have to clean them up a bit.  This means shampoo and blow dry – I use a diluted baby shampoo and warm water.  It takes a surprising amount of time.

They don’t like the getting wet part.  Forgive me if any of these pics are a repeat, I get confused on what I post on the blog versus my IG page!

But the blow dry is a fave. They coo then nod off to sleep.  I’m using a diffuser here so the warm air is not too direct.

So what are some things our chickens are up to when they’re not digging for bugs or glamming it up in front of the camera?  I’d say they lead a pretty normal life.

They enjoy regular chicken things…like saddling up and playing with Breyer dolls.

Wearing cloth chicken diapers.  This could be an assumption on my part.

Lounging on a chaise with bla-blas.  Duh.

And hanging with their guardian, Pippi.  Although Chapeau will charge Pippi on occasion.

So there you have it.  A glimpse of our chickens’ lives.  You can see a few more moments of their day to day (yep they even help with homework) and read about how we rescued our little hen, Chatoiement, in this previous post.

Happy Friday!
