    100 Pictures of my Flock

    Welcome to 100 Pictures of my Flock, the original Summer 2012 Edition! This was a project I tried during summer break, May 6 to August 19 of 2012, but I didn't reach my goal before school started again. Anyway, the goal is simple: take one unique picture fitting one of the 100 themes I have thought up!

    These themes are meant to be open to several meanings, as I hoped to catch my birds in the act, sort of spur-of-the-moment chance that I find them doing these things. I have only a few themes that I had in mind what I wanted to do for them from the start. However, none of these pictures are staged. This is just my flock doing their normal, everyday goofy things when I happened to be around with the camera to catch them. ;)

    Anyone can do this, too! It's super-fun and gives you a lot of quality time with the girls! I might suggest, though, that someone wanting to try this switches up the themes in their checklist a bit, mainly because some of these themes based on activities pretty unique to my flock (for instance, not everyone camps out with their chickens :lol: ). On top of that, it'll give everyone something different to do to make their checklist special.

    Here is my checklist:
