Henrietta D. Thoreau

This is the Ameraucana hen we named Mako. She is a pretty dear, and I find her black, tufted beard charming. I brought her inside, so everyone could have a nice long look. We admired her, and adored her, and William said, "She looks like Henry David Thoreau," and he brought up an image so we could compare the two.

A Thoreauly tufted beard. An Alaskan Whaler.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
~Henry David Thoreau

Mako looks a bit stern, I know, but she's really quite docile and social. Like Thoreau, she's a happy proponent of simple living in natural surroundings. I like the comparison.
