I Have you ever found yourself surfing the web checking out to see if there are any cool T-shirts or hats that have "chicken quotes" on them? Well, I have. Of course. What could be worthier than spending an entire Saturday evening in front of your laptop chuckling over funny, witty, unusual (and sometimes quite tasteless - dare I mention "cock quotes") Chicken sayings. And since the Chicken bug is contagious I have long given it to
my daughters, mainly my oldest daughter, who can spend hours entertaining herself looking at shirts and things with Chicken Quotes printed on them. She has accumulated an Amazon wish list so long that even when I use the page down button and barely glance at the items it takes days to get to the end. When she first started it I grew increasingly concerned with the seemingly odd behavior. She would sit hours in front of the Laptop, mumbling and chuckling at it, staring intently without blinking, occasionally blurting out "I got to have this!", all while barely even picking up her phone to text her friends. Something was seriously wrong! And then, after two days and getting the 10th Wishlist for Chicken Themed Shirts it finally hit me - she is infected! She's got OCCD, or better known in the Backyard Chicken Fanatic circles as "Obsessive Chicken Clothing Disorder." There is no known cure, other than actually ordering the stuff.
As for me - I am amazed. Little did I know that I could be decked out in chicken gear from the tip of my hair down to my pinky toe, complete with chicken nail decals. I could warm my toes in my rooster slippers, sip from my funny chicken quote mug, go to bed in my chicken pajamas, dream chicken dreams and then wake up the next morning to my Rooster alarm clock. Well, actually, now that I think about it, I don't believe I need to buy that one. We currently have an abundance of roosters, one of which has made it his mission to overnight on the front porch, just so he can jump-start my heart with his earsplitting crows when I trot out on the porch in the morning to gather the dog dishes. If I am half asleep when I go out there, I am usually fully awake within seconds, not just because of his cocka-doodle-doo but also because of the hot coffee I regularly spill on myself when I jump 3 feet in the air because he scares the chicken-you know what out of me.
Anyway, back to my dreams of a world full of Chicken paraphernalia - so I trot back inside, cleaning the coffee (brewed from Farm Fresh Red Rooster Coffee of course) off of myself with a paper towel that I got from my Rooster Themed Paper Towel Holder, glance at my Rooster Kitchen Clock and start fixing myself eggs with my Henrietta Hen Egg Boiler. Then I get out my Chicken cereal bowls
and sit down for breakfast while perusing the newest issue of Poultry Magazine and Practical Poultry.
And that would just be the beginning of the day! Next I could shower behind Chicken curtains, dress in chicken themed socks, grab my chicken key chain, throw on my Chicken themed Shirt, pack my Rooster Lunchbox and, and..... Sigh. Life is good :-) Can't you just see a world where Chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned and Chicken obsessed people can fuss over their feathery flock in full theme-gear ?
If you haven't checked out the full variety of merchandise out there for us Chicken Lovers then you should really spend an afternoon cruising the web for Chicken Themed Stuff. YOU WILL OPEN A BRAND NEW HORIZON FOR YOURSELF. Or, start a new addiction, I guess that depends on how you want to look at it.
I have assembled a photo gallery of the coolest stuff available out there for your enjoyment. Don’t forget to check the shop pages for some beautiful Rooster and Chicken themed Gifts available right here in the store. And while you do that pour yourself some Red Rooster Coffee - it really is some of the best out there.
