Chickens

A quick post about Chickens tonight.


I am up against my post deadline tonight as I have been reading a book that has been hard to put down. The last 300 pages of The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy have captivated me and kept me glued to the couch.


So, since I took some pictures of chickens today I thought I would share some of them.

Chicken Coop, Farm, Farmyard, Country LivingToday we had three little visitors at the orchard. One of the things that my friend David wanted to show them were the chickens. Here is one of the little girls checking out the chickens.

Farm Fresh Eggs, Brown Eggs, Country Eggs, ChickensHe also let them collect the eggs. It was definitely a new experience for them.

Chickens, Barnyard, Red Chickens, LayersI was trying to get some good closeup pictures of the chickens, especially of their heads. I was getting pretty close and then ………

Jumping Chicken, Closeup, startledthe chicken jumped up toward the lens of my camera. It startled me, but I got an interesting picture. Although it is not in focus, I got the closeup that I wanted 🙂

Roosters, wandering roosters, farm, orchard, cherry blossomsI also got a few pictures of some wandering roosters. The roosters belong to a neighbor down the road but they tend to spend more time at the orchard and think that it is sun-up most of the day. They are quite noisy.

Here they are just across in the neighboring cherry orchard which is slowly shedding blossoms and setting on fruit.

I also got quite a few pictures of bees and blossoms so perhaps you might see some of them soon.

Keep tuned…
