Just a few snapshots of our Reds in the backyard. The only really notable thing about these photos are that they were shot with a 400mm lens that I borrowed from Canon Professional Services. Quite the hunk of glass, this thing is!

Edie lays an egg

I’ve been curious for quite some time as to how the chickens actually lay their eggs. I opened the webcam just now and saw Edie, our Easter Egger, looking like she was going to lay an egg. And I captured a few seconds of video showing her little blue egg appearing, as if by magic.

Dust baths?

Among other things, our little Edie was taking a dust bath today, which is a really odd thing to watch. The first time I saw it, I was worried, because she looked like she was in distress. But she’s just being a chicken, and chickens love dust baths!

Had Edie help me test a new video camera I bought. Pretty bird, don’t you think?
