Chickens and Children

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, barge the camera on the mistaken theory that everything is funnier if it’s closer.Ivy, Clara and Jane

Children, are sad when their sisters have abandoned them and the photo session is over.Jane

Chickens, are not.broiler chicken

(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!
