    Putting up a game camera and setting it to take 3 shot sequences is like watching chicken TV in stop motion

    Anyway I saved a few of the best shots [​IMG]
    they're just doing what they do when I'm not around lol it's like sneaking a peak into their secret world

    How COOL! I just bought a game camera on eBay and can hardly wait to put it into operation.

    What gorgeous roosters! Especially that one big, red fella!!!

    Quote:That's my last remaining Dominique from a trio that I bought at a swap meet. I ended up with 2 cockerels, and one of them was running the pullets SO bad by 12weeks that it was off with his head, and my little pullet just up and died on me one afternoon I think maybe heatstroke although absolutely nothing came back on the necropsy, so this guy is left. I like him a lot too. He's a good roo, nice to be around and nice to the girls. He's low on the pecking order too.
    That would be me and hubbs, when I come to get the camera to bring home to read on my computer.

    Quote:The black and red one? I bet you mean my Black Copper Marans. He's handsome and really loves the ladies!
    I'm on the fence about keeping him to pair with some hens I have. They all have pretty good coloring but his tail set isn't right, and they don't lay just the best eggs either...BUT at the same time I don't have anything better to breed to them.

    Quote:It's a Bushnell with IR flash, costs about $150 at WalMart and I've been VERY happy with it
