Storm Photo & Chicken Photo Updates

28 May 2012

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!

Young chickens in the grass…such a great sight!

The chickens look wonderful – they grew up so fast! Glad your storm passed without incident.

Lovely, feathered ladies. Scary clouds; glad you’re safe.
