This morning I went with to the Chicken Show in Worcester. Lian’s teacher breeds chickens and he entered some of his and got a few prizes to.
What a task did I have to take photo’s of the hens and roosters. They did not sit still for one second and the cages was so small that I could not even fade out the front to get a nice shot of the chickens. I must say that Hens and Roosters don’t like their front and sides to be photographed. Every single photo I wanted to take of them I either get a head turned away or their backside. Maybe they think it’s their best side who knows what goes through that little heads.
My 18 – 200mm lens was just a tad to long for that small cages. But under the circumstances I don’t think I did to bad. So were I could I tried to get in a whole one but most of the time I just concentrated on head shots.
Here are just two random picked photo’s of today. I will post up the rest when I get time to edit them. I have got allot of work and I am going on holiday in a weeks time. So now I must stop typing and start to edit….
This morning when I went to feed the chickens I took with my camera. I wanted to take some photo’s of our one Rooster.
In the coop we have two Roosters, one is still very young and three hens. I have no idea what breed they are, but will find out from the man who breeds them. They are very tame and the boys usually picks them up and pat them.
The large Rooster really made me laugh. In some photo’s he look like he’s having a bad feather day.
With my husband not being here and the boys in school this morning I had to go and feed the chickens. I took my “boyfriend” with for some company.
The chickens was very happy to see me. Okay not me the food and fresh water. I took some photo’s of our big Rooster. LOL he’s sexy and he knows it…
My photo of the day is a head shot of that Sexy Rooster. Please don’t ask me what breed the chickens are because really I have no idea. If I remember I will ask the person who breeds them I am sure he’ll know…
