Concentration by FireflyPhotosAust Concentration by FireflyPhotosAust
I was too busy working around the yard this weekend to get out and take any photos so I decided to take a break and see what was on offer around the house. I spotted one of our hens wandering around and was amazed by the look of concentration that she displayed.

Now this is something really different from you.
Interesting, though. You did a good job. Did you have to lie down in the grass to get the perspective?

We used to breed the Silkie Bantams and Pekin Bantams - they are good sellers.

I always look at the chickens at the Easter Show as they have so many beautiful ones.

We did have some calves that we had planned to eat but we became too attached to them. They were actually like dogs and came running up to us when we called their names - we had to sell them instead of eating them:D

They are starting to become popular in Australia again now.

You don't really need much room for them:-)

They are good to it and the focus is a wonder of be smart or be stupid and take age for each new thing from of it.

Hen are interesting to look at and i discovered that can be also ery good pet with a demand of care and love. Even if they are not too smart , they are fun animal.
