Storm Photo & Chicken Photo Updates

Monday, 28 May 12

It had been a while since I photographed the chickens so on Saturday I took my camera out with their evening scratch treat. They move pretty fast – it was hard to get good shots one-handed while tossing scratch.

The other photo is of a funnel cloud breaking up on Friday evening when we had some pretty fierce thunderstorms. I stood watching it for a few seconds to determine if I needed to hightail it to the basement, but it did start to break up. By the time I got the camera, turned it on, and got the photo, there wasn’t much to look at.

    Looks like Alberta has relatives. I was wondering about her breed (3rd photo) and seeing all your girls together suggests she’s 90+% Barred Plymouth.
    We’re hoping there will be more come Springtime (or soon after)…

    @graibeard yes I think Alberta looks very much like a Barred Plymouth rock. Mine will be 10 weeks old tomorrow.

    Glad you didn’t have to go to the basement! And all your girls look very chirrupy!
