Pairing Up
Pairing Up

----
The Chicken Flock at Cuttalossa Farm.
----------
Two trips to the over-200-year-old farm taught me a LOT about the lives of chickens. It wasn't until I was surprised by a dramatic mating at the end of my second visit, that I went back through my photos and pieced together the courtship.
----
These two "couples" were starting to pair up at the rear entrance of the sheep barn. The pair at the door eventually consummated before my eyes. Stay tuned.
----
On the side of the barn, once a saw mill, is the old mill wheel, now inoperable (see remark section). Now the farm raises tiny "baby doll" miniature sheep--for Pets!

We'll see more of the chickens in the days to come.
---
The sitting goose is quite lame, I discovered, and seems "down in the dumps" to me as she can only watch the flock's fun and antics from afar.

I watched this poor lame goose painfully and slowly making its way to the fence. From there the flock of chickens could be seen frolicking around the clear fresh pond.

Excellent farm photos. "Pairing up" catches my attention the most. Not only the chicken being placed nicely in the composition but the elements like the arched fences, the wooden bench, farm window, the barrel and pail come together to compliment the whole picture. A wonderful image with stunning details and lighting. Congratulations, Michelle
