Us Chickens/ Camera Critters

Ain't nobody here but us chickens

"We got things to do. we got eggs to lay
We got ground to dig, and worms to scratch
It takes a lot of sittin', gettin' chicks to hatch
Oh, there ain't nobody here but us chickens...
There ain't nobody here at all"
~ Alex Kramer and Joan Whitney, 1946

they're so cute! We visited a farm recently and I saw the cutest black and white chicks and rooster. Thanks for dropping by to see me. Hope you enjoy the textures.

Kathy said...

Too funny. My pic yesterday was a rooster, but the only kind that's allowed in the city -- ceramic! I love your alive chickens in your collage. Chickens seem to have so much confidence and aren't nearly as "flighty" (no pun intended) as those little nervous birds!

Jacob said...

Love it! I can still remember when as a kid I'd spend time at Grandma's farm in northern Minnesota (during the summer) and had the chore of collecting eggs and reaching underneath the hens only to get my hands pecked. Great fun!

Rose said...

What wonderful captures...were they all from one farm or from several places?

Jarart said...

Chickens are fun to watch! Your collage made me smile.

leavesnbloom said...

those are good collages and a great poem to go along with it. I'm organising a post on chickens just now but it probably won't be published till next Friday.

RuneE said...

This reminded me of the movie "Chicken run" - you have caught the spirit :-)

Thank you for the comment - it is much appreciated. BTW, I have also posted another photo about the same date.

Barbara said...

Love this series of captures. Great composition.

Cute chickens :) I bet they enjoy being able to scratch for food again outside.

Cute post! One of our neighbors recently acquired a rooster. I haven't seen him yet, but I can hear him every day--and not just in the morning. The sound seems a little out of place in this wooded suburban neighborhood, but it always makes me smile.

Paulie said...

You made me chuckle.

Lovely pics of the chicks! I especially like that little brown one.

Rose,
They were from one farm, free-range chickens, I suspect. Very free-range. They were actually feeding very close to the road so I talked my husband into stopping so I could take their photos.

Self Sagacity said...

Those chickens are so cute. I remember being closer to them when I was little. A brief flash back in memory lane. Thanks!

Lavender Cottage said...

Too cute! Gives new meaning to the term 'free range' and they're lucky none of them played in the traffic.

Michael said...

Those guys think they are the bee's knees. :)

George said...

You captured some handsome roosters and beautiful hens. This is a great Camera Critters mosaic.

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

Cool chickens, I want chickens sooooo bad.

Small City Scenes said...

Love it!!! Excellent post. Great mosaic. You are the best. MB

Lindy MacDuff said...

This is darn cute! I think this would make a great framed photo in someone's kitchen. =)

ladyfi said...

Great shots! Love their colouring and expressions!

Johnny Nutcase said...

they're pretty cute, great up close shots!

Reader Wil said...

Chickens are the most pleasant domestic animals in a rural area! Yours are beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Thanks for your visit!

Cute chickens!

It is nice watching them pecking about.

wonderful critters,a very busy creatures!

Willard said...

An excellent camera critters post that brings back a lot of memories. We used to have a lot of free ranging chickens on our farm, but they are gone now.

In answer to your questions about the deer's antlers-growing them is not a painful process although it seems that they are fairly protective of the antlers while they are in velvet, so it may be painful to hit something with them.

I LOVE these photos! They are SO cute!
