    They all look like crops from bigger images, specially the 2nd one where there is noise and lack of image quality

    Agree with the above. Also try to make your shots a little bit more interesting...

    Looks like you had plenty of light, could you have dropped your ISO or opened up your aperture?

    And they are not interesting in that they lack a good compostion. In my opinon, they are too tight of shots. and/or cutting off part of the chickens.

    I like the chicken in the first shot, but feel the grass highlights above detract from the animal. The second one does not appeal to me. The third one has potential from the interest perspective, but the blown out highlights and image quality detract.

    Some suggestions about how to improve your photos: Buy a book on your particular camera. Any good bookstore should have one or order one online.
    Look at your histogram on your camera right after taking your photo and if you see blown out highlights adjust your exposure compensation button. If your camera has active d lighting, you can adjust this also. Your camera manual or another book on your camera will explain this.

    Buy some good books on your image editing program, and use Levels, Curves, the darkening brush, etc. It really does take reading and practice.

    I still think your first chicken is beautiful. Try a few more shots of it to bring out more of the beauty.

    Good Luck.

    My point was that your comment amounted to "hey try to suck less!", which isn't very helpful... if you had some more specifics on how he might improve the image or his approach to the process might be helpful.
