    A nice day of sun after a few days of rain put both me and my ladies in a good mood. So while they ran around looking for tasty snacks, I decided to take some portraits. Those little heads move real fast, it's hard to get a good shot! But here's a few of my faves, just for your entertainment:

    Hey, is it really time to come out?

    They LOVE this area by the ferns. We call it the "fern buffet" or "fern bar":

    Quote:The wyandotte, actually. I want to get a really good close up of the feathers and blow it up and put it in a frame. Simple and gorgeous like the chicken herself.
