Random Chicken Picture

Today is Friday the 13th.
Tonight is the full moon.
It’s also the Harvest Moon.

I am hoping that it’s nice enough tonight that I can get out and take some pictures of the moon.
Weather network tells me it’s supposed to be clear, so fingers crossed!

In the meantime, here’s a random chicken picture.

They’re both from my first ever hatching.
White one is a rooster. Handsome devil, but not likely to stay in the breeding program.
The other one, well, not sure if that’s the hen or the roo…we’ve got a few with colours like that.
I still haven’t decided which rooster I plan on keeping out of the 2 hatches.
We easily have enough hens for 2 boys, so we’ll keep a 2nd for extra hatching eggs come spring.
Next Fall, we’ll look for new blood and swap out at least one of the boys.
Or, sometime during hatching season, I’ll buy some eggs from someone and hatch out with hopes of getting a new rooster.

We’ll see when the time comes.

World Photo Day

Today is World Photo Day, celebrating photography, photos and the people who take them.
Here at the Farm, I celebrated last night, with a little impromptu moonlight shooting…

Moon over Cookie

Moon over Cookie

The moon was huge, coming up over the horizon. And moving fast too.
In the 3 or 4 minutes it took to line this shot up, it went from touching the horizon to where you see it over her back!

Once again in black and white.

So, in celebration of the day, go out with your cameras, my friends, be they point and shoots, phone cameras, or dslrs…go out and take pictures, make memories and celebrate that we have such amazing technology to capture the images that speak to our Spirit!

Happy World Photo Day!
