My chicken friends

After seeing a way-cool documentary on turkeys over Thanksgiving, I was inspired to do a little bird photo shoot of my own. So I used my afternoon off to hang with the chippies and snap a few pics of the ladies kicking up bugs in the backyard leaves. Obviously domestic hens in an an East Austin backyard is not quite as majestic as wild turkeys in the Florida wilderness, and I don’t have quite the same clout and photography abilities as the masterminds at PBS, but I still had a good afternoon hanging with the chicks.

    Cute how they hang together. Hope they will be getting some meal worms for Christmas.

  3. I plan on getting my own little chicks in the Spring so always stop at anything chicken related! Your girls are adorable. Do you have any helpful advice for a chicken newbie?

    • Spring is a good time for getting chicks. Just make sure they have a lamp or a warm place to stay at night as I’ve known a few people who who lose little ones to the cold. I also think it’s good to spend a lot of time with them when they are little so they will be comfortable around you in their adulthood.
