Portrait of a Hen



DSC_5659hen5, originally uploaded by H.Conley.

It’s not easy to get a chicken’s portrait, they are just too quick! But I gave it a college try when I visited my favorite local flower farm this summer.

The farmer’s daughter collects the eggs and feeds the gals so she can sell the eggs at the Farmer’s Market each week. She earns $8 or $9 per market, not too bad for being a young entrepreneur! All the hens have darling names like Henrietta and Oreo but you need to memorize the numbers on theirs leg tags to get the inside information. Kind thanks again to Jen for letting me visit her farm. Flower pics to follow soon!
