A chicken a day: off the wall with mystery breeds!

He’s a handsome guy, isn’t he? I’m not up on chicken breeds, though. Is this a Spanish chicken? An Orpington?

I’m way behind on a chicken-a-day, so let’s play catch-up a bit.

This little kitchen plaque was made 47 years ago. I can prove it!

It’s Syroco! From MCMLXVII! (That’s 1967 to you non-Latin speakers.)

Syroco made all sorts of decorative doodads.

Here the picture is printed on heavy card and stapled into the unbreakable and never-needs-painting frame. There’s no glass, so the paper is authentically aged and foxed a bit after 40-plus years.

But the frame was designed to look “distressed” and “aged” right from the get-go. This isn’t quite an example of Ye Olde Earlie American Fake Antiquey Stuff, but it’s close.

I like the scooped corners on the frame. And that green is just marvy. It’s vintage but could go modern at the same time.

But wait! There’s more!
