    You take amazing photos. Did you take any photography courses? These are really good.

    How do you get such good pictures?! My chickens make the most funniest faces when I take pics of them. I have 500 something pics of just my chickens.lol I take them with my phone though. What do you use?

    I use a Canon EOS Rebel T5. I've been doing photography for quite a few years now. I think the most chicken pictures I ever took in a day was 800 or more. I have discovered the best pictures are the ones were the chickens are happy. Some chickens don't like people near them, so I have to have a bigger lens on my camera so that I can be further away without me bothering them. Some chickens are better in pictures than others, too. Sex-Link hens and hens on top of pecking orders look and do better in pictures. Roosters usually are good, too.
