Pepper - the brunette

she's a Black Australorp.. i think this is my favourite breed.. friendly and beautiful.. her feathers shine with iridescent colours in the sunshine.. she is my alpha bird.. in any flock, if there is no a rooster, then a hen will take on the role of a rooster.. not just in personality, but in physical form.. she has long spurs and stands on guard, watching the skies and woods for predators..

she is crazy friendly.. loves jumping onto our laps or walking right in the house if the door is cracked open.. she is especially fond of the fella - if she hears his voice, she comes running.. i so love her too..

I am not sure which of the two chickens I like better. Guardy looks a little more friendlier than Pepper.  Pepper's shinny black feathers are really pretty but Guardy''s yellow coloring is also very attractive. Either way you have taken some really cool photos of your chickens.smile

Another fabulous series Sherry.  The clarity in No.1 is spot on!  
No. 2 though is my favourite.  I love the way that your photo draws me to Pepper's eye.  
The colours are complimentary and the simplicity makes for a wonderful capture.  Well done smile

Taking the male's role, does she lay eggs, like the rest of the "girls"???

Personally, I could care less who does what to whom, as long as it's legal, mutually agreed upon, harmless and not a crime against Nature or anyone else, for that matter.....smile
