I was also going to mention Jan Brett. My kids enjoy Hedgie's Surprise and Daisy Comes Home. In the back of Daisy Comes Home it mentions that Jan Brett owns several hens which of course she uses for inspiration
Jan Brett actually breeds and shows polish, most of my polish stock came from her
Bearded and non-bearded silkies in black, paint, and self blue (lavender). Bantam polish in white-crested black, chocolate, and khaki. Lahore and frillback pigeons.
