please. They are both from last summer. The first one is Katie, a silver laced wyandotte. The background concerns me. Is it too distracting? Is Katie at a strange angle, or is that ok? The second one, Crooked Toe the rooster. He helpfully offered to mow the lawn. Chickens are hard to take pictures of, at least for me, because they almost never stand still. Even if their bodies are still, they jerk their heads around. Does anyone have any advice for taking pictures of them? What I usually do is take lots of pictures and get lucky with a few that are actually in focus.
