Chickens

I really like the chickens on my compound. There's one mange-y looking hen who I call The Ugly Chicken but who is the favorite because she lays more eggs than any of the other hens. Some of her little chicks have the same odd bald spots that she does, they're funny-looking. 


These little chickens like to hang out by my hut chirping and scuttling around next to my front step. They're adorable, but surprisingly difficult to catch at just the right moment in a photograph. I spent maybe 15 minutes taking chicken photos, which the neighbors thought was totally amusing and kinda stupid. 



It was worth it, though. Just look at these chickens. Fantastic.
