    My friend's daughter is raising chickens for their eggs. Per the daughter's request, I took some pictures. It was too cold to let them outside, so I brought the 28mm f/1.8 USM. The coop isn't that big. Later that day, they flew the coop but I didn't pull out the camera. I was helping her retrieve them.

    Little fact I didn't know. Rooster is not required for eggs. They just start laying. Their egg production peters out around 4 years, at which point you have a pet chicken or stew.

    I'm squatting in the middle of the coop for this one. I white balanced off the feathers to remove the red hue from the heat lamps.

    This Northern Flicker is becoming a regular backyard visitor. I have been feeding and photographing for several years now and have not (until now) seen one of these visit the feeders.

    Joel, that is such an interesting looking bird. I've never seen one before, and you have captured it very well. Thanks for showing.

    You can tell that those chicken feel cold. Great idea - do post some when they are outside

    +1 the posture is just right. Is it a perch you put there?
