FEATHERS IN HER CAP
Stylish Mae Vavrea tops off her turban with a black-tailed white Japanese bantam rooster at the Chicago Poultry and Pet Show in 1926. Though not published in the story, this photo was probably acquired for the Geographic's April 1927 article "America's Debt to the Hen." In it author Harry R. Lewis notes, "For untold centuries the hen has been a companion of man in the onward march of civilization…The hen might be termed a universal favorite, in that a greater number of persons are interested and actually concerned with poultry than with any other form of live stock." No mention was made of the bird, however, as headgear.

Love it! This woman has some serious faith that her chicken will not poop on her. I manage to strategically hold my chicks in my hand, with their butt hanging over my arm so that if they poop, it will hit the ground, not me.
This photo did get me wondering though. Chloe as a hat? So fashionable, so chic. I'd need to invest in some chicken diapers though.
Amazon also had this option. Safer, but not as stylish.
(private note to my Dad: Do not purchase this for yourself.)
