The official photographic portrait of Emily Watson
You may have seen her portrait , painted by Arthur on the coop doors. If you did, I’m sure you asked yourself ‘Who is this Emily really? What is she like? Where is she going in life and does she have dreams like mine?’ Now is your chance to find out.

Colour analysis by Bella
Soft Autumn. This means that
• She would look cute in a vintage floral apron
• She looks great with browns and soft leafy green colours (This is pretty handy if you are a free range chicken.)
• She could look good in a leopard print bathing suit if she wanted to wear one. She hasn’t indicated that she wants to wear one.
soft autumn colour swatch book (I am lucky to have this. It also matches another chicken who may need to be accessorised, and more importantly my house!)
Smoked salmon (Okay, so she’s only tried it once, but she grabbed a large chunk and sprinted across the yard to get away from the others.)
She really can’t sprint. She’s adept at the hurried waddle (a pace yet to be recognised by an Olympic sporting event).
• complaining loudly if not let out to free range by 8am
• making a big fuss if somebody tries to catch her
• being stroked whilst sitting on somebody’s hand with her fluffy feet dangling
• going broody
• laying a small, peachy-white egg every few days
Pecking Order Ranking
Third from the top… via chance (she would make a terrible top hen!)
• If smelling salts were still in vogue, Emily would carry them in a slightly ragged reticule with some of the beading falling off.
• If Emily became top hen, the whole flock would be carrying smelling salts and reticules.
I think this captures the startled expression better than the official portrait
‘What is going on? Why am I up here? What are you doing? Where are my smelling salts?’
I know nothing of personal colour analysis. Please do not try to colour analyse your chicken at home if you are sending her to an important function. Employ a trained stylist to help you with her outfit. She will thank you for it one day…. maybe.
And seriously, getting your own colours done properly is a fun and worthwhile thing, even if you choose not to use the information. At least you will know what colours, fabrics and patterns do and don’t suit you so that you can make informed shopping decisions. (In my case, informed op-shopping decisions…)
