Check out the awesomely long tails on these roosters! These regal specimens are Onagadori or “Long-tailed” chickens. They’re a breed of chicken from the Kōchi Prefecture of Japan who evolved from common domestic chickens who mated with Green Junglefowl. Also known as the ‘most honorable fowl’ in Japan, they’ve been carefully bred over the centuries to achieve their spectacular tails, which grow to lengths of 12 to 27 feet. It takes these chickens at least three years to molt. Onagadori breeders take tremendous pride in their chickens and provide special hutches with perches well above the ground, which helps keep their tails clean and in good condition.

If Rapunzel had been a chicken, she probably would’ve looked a lot like one of these awesome birds. These extraordinarily fancy fowl have Special Natural Monument status in Japan, which means they’re considered to be living monuments of Japanese culture and, as a protected breed, it’s illegal to take their eggs out of the country.

I’m Not Gonna Hurt Ya! by cuddlyrigormortis for spokeart's Kubrick show.

archiemcphee:

"The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”

Because who doesn’t love anthropomorphic food and animal friends? Our friend and awesome artist Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here) just opened a solo exhibition of new paintings, entitled Happy As Kings, at Gallery Nucleus. The show runs through September 21, 2014.

Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson poem, “Happy Thought”, the artist introduces us to a group of gleeful royals that find happiness in the ordinary yet wonderful things in life.

Don’t worry if you can’t make it down in person, click here to view the exhibition online and even purchase originals and prints.
