Birds (and people) of a feather flock together at the National Poultry Show in Stoneleigh, England last week: these prize-winning poultry owners seem to bear uncanny resemblances to their beloved pets. (Maybe it’s because they spend so much time cooped up together.) Take a look at the 'fowl' portraits below. Are they cock-a-doodle-dos or cock-a-doodle-don'ts?

What came first? The chicken or the sweater? We may never know, but Allan and Dinah Procter, along with their 20-month-old White Wyandotte Bantam hen prove they're no empty nesters.

Obviously it's all in the plumage for these two chick magnets. Callum Vivian-Crowder shows off his similarly coiffed, prize-winning 12-month-old Blue Partridge Wyandotte Bantam Cockerel.

Tracey Gunning was must've been red with envy, yearning for an auburn mane just like her 8-month-old Asian Hardfeather Malay Bantam Cockerel.

Who says tough guys don't have pet chickens? Dilwyn Green and his Gold Silkie Bantam look like they could star in "Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Bantams."

 Also, don't miss these good eggs.
