I've just had my first go with my daughter's digital camera....bought a new lead. A few people have talked about buff barred or cuckoo birds so I thought I'd try to get some pics of the Buff Cuckoo Orps we've been making. Unfortunately the birds had other ideas. Thus with my being very inept with these cameras with zooms & stuff... & the birds refusing to pose I got mostly pictures of two of the cockerels' bums. Still the pics do show the markings. These cockerels are just over 7 months old; they were hatched last September after I came back from Britain. This is the only pic where Ididn't chop the cockerel's head off. Please ignore pullet in front, she's a mess, but she fancied having some treats too. . The next two show the markings. The taller of the cockerels has a tad bit of peppering in the tail. which is undesirable but it isn't showing in the pic. Anyone know how to get chickens to pose?
