Tried out my newest camera today on Wynette and her chicks. She wanted to be the baby today so it wasn't easy, as you can see by the closeups I took of her hugging me. She had me trapped, LOL. But, hey, this little Sony camera does great in macro! My other one would never do this at less than a foot away.
The little girl on front who almost gave me the heart attack yesterday has a name. After one of the daughters of Suede, her name is Athena. Ladyhawk in Kentucky raised Athena, who went broody at 5 years old, her only time, raised her chick and not that long afterward, passed away. She suffered from hereditary pendulous crop like her mother, my Smoky. Athena was the head hen as long as she lived with LH's main group, headed by her blue Orp rooster, Lancelot. So, this is Athena.
Hard to balance on my heels with Wynette trying to hug me the entire time.
