A: Do you know?

In Alabama, we have had both large and bantam breeds of chickens. These red roosters often fight with each other (notice the injuries on their combs), but for this moment, they were quite content to just pose for my photo!

    this is my favorite of this set of chicken pic's. Are they Rhode Island reds?

    One is a Rhode Island I believe, the smaller one is a red cochin bantam.

    Tiffany, I wish I'd been able to show some in fairs and take them around in my car with me. I used to daydream about that kind of stuff all the time. I think where I've moved, maybe one day I will be able to. Right now, my uncle and his family have a pet chicken in their house!

    I love your chicken shots. Did you ever see the book, Extraordinary Chickens? I have it on my desk.

    Thanks for the nice words everybody! May, I have not seen that book as far as I remember, but it sounds like I should!

    Nearby RI is known for the RI Red, which looks much the same! Nice portrait, Melissa! Sharp, colorful and with a perfect backdrop!
