The Girls….

Sadly my small flock of beautiful chooks has been reduced to only three – blame foxes and an illness.  These are Isa Browns, egg laying machines really, whose lovely big brown eggs pay for their food.  Economies of scale dictate that I need to get the numbers up again, so this coming weekend I plan to purchase three more point of lay hens at the local Farmer’s Market.  Yesterday I sat on a flowerpot inside the chook run to take these shots.  I love their vibrant colours and feather markings, they look so shiny and soft.

Taken with the borrowed Canon 5D and 70–200mm lens.

  1. You sure do lead a great life Sue–sitting in the chook run to take these photos is the best one that I have heard.
    Well done because they are great photos.

    Interesting how the photo with the eye as a focus point is my clear favourite. I found the same thing when I was photographing at the zoo a couple of weeks ago.
    Sorry I did not know about Scott Kelby’s day, altho’ I could not actually have gone

  3. They are really beautiful. How did it go on the market, did you find some more?

  4. They are really beautiful, and you have captured some amazing detail in their feathers.
