This mother hen was not happy at all with me taking pictures! She ran at me a couple time but I was still able to get 3 shots! She has 14 chicks following her around, that’s a lot! 🙂 My friend said that she had 16 chicks, two went missing yesterday. These belong to a friend.
He let’s his chickens run wild, doesn’t bother to put them in the coop that he spent $500 for material and then built it himself. Only a few a year get missing, which surprises me. He lives about 15 miles from me in a more populated area so he doesn’t have the coyotes and fox like we do.
If you look at these pictures really good you can see the chicks are all different colors. Do you raise chicken? Did you let your hens have chicks this year?
I decide to pull theSanDisk card from my Reconyx trail cam today and had a over 50 pictures of wild eastern turkey, 20 plus night pictures of raccoons and a a few of a red fox. Most of these turkey pictures are males, tom or often called gobblers. Tom turkeys have a beard, a snood on top of their head, dark almost black plunage around the neck and the extra claw or spur behind the foot. Click on the pictures to enlarge to see the details I mentioned!
I love these pictures where they are flapping their wings, looks like they are standing on their toes!!
I love my trail cam, the brand I purchased is a Reconyx Hyperfire trail cam but there are many different brands and price ranges. Each picture get the date and time stamp, moon and temperature.
