The light this evening was just starting to get "pretty", so I grabbed my camera just before dinner and went out to take some photos. I got 27 photos taken before my camera's battery died, and before the light got really nice! *groan*
Here are a few shots I took before the battery died...
Bad Boxcar Betty was up to her usual antics.
They are very busy chickens. John's Chicken is Alan's dad's chicken. Alan's parents live in town. This chicken showed up in their back yard one day last summer, and took up residence on their back porch. After about a week of her living on their porch, they figured she'd be better off out at the farm with other chicken friends, so she came to live with us. I was going to call her something like Hobo or Hippy Chick, but the name John's Chicken kind of just stuck.
Admiral was hatched here on the farm, and is a very nice rooster. He's always finding snacks for the ladies, and keeps an eye out for danger. He even loves to be held! It's not uncommon for me to carry him around the barnyard while I do chores. He keeps good conversation.
And he loves to crow...
...time to charge the camera battery!
