    I can't get my chickens to quit moving. [​IMG] They are always moving- eating, scratching, dusting, running, catching bugs, you name it and they're doing it and more. If they do stand still, you can bet they are facing away from me. [​IMG]

    Sit out there and take lots of pictures post the best. Also have your camera so you can take fast pictures (with mine that means no flash)
    One of my favorite shots (I lost this little girl to a coon less then 3wks later) :

    I agree, you have to take lots of pictures of almost anything that moves, to get one really good picture or wait until they are settled down....I love this picture, she was sitting on a bucket half asleep...
