It seems I’ve taken a lot of pictures of chickens and children lately. And while they are similar beings in that no small garden plant is safe from either of them and food disappears in vast quantities whenever they are around, I feel it’s safe to say that in most other respects they are quite different.
For instance when approached by a camera, they react quite differently.
Children (my children anyway), get a serious attack of the sillies.
Chickens, do not.
Children, barge the camera on the mistaken theory that everything is funnier if it’s closer.
Chickens, do not.
Children, are sad when their sisters have abandoned them and the photo session is over.
Chickens, are not.
(At least I’m pretty sure they aren’t, this girl looks fairly content to me.)
Also, if you live in the area and are interested in purchasing a chicken or two once they are ready for the oven let me know, the chicken order e-mail is going out tonight!
🙂 Glad to hear it, I thought I might just be amusing myself with this one! 😉
Haha, no it was great! 😄
“Also, if you live in the area and are interested in purchasing a child or two let me know. (The children order e-mail is NOTgoing out tonight as the government tends to have no sense of humor whatsoever about that kind of thing…)”
I actually had to double check that I didn’t have a bit of a Freudian slip and write child instead of chicken… 😀
Even your chickens are photogenic! What sort are they?!
They are cornish rock crosses bred to eat lots and gain weight fast. We actually call them “the ugly” chickens because compared to the layers… well lets just not compare them! 😉 This years layers… now those are photogenic chicks! 🙂 https://www.instagram.com/p/BFfhNCwRo-g/?taken-by=behindthewillows
