Sunday Stills: Rule of Thirds

After telling everybody I've been using the Rule of Thirds for a while, do you think I could get the animals to cooperate?

Avo, King of the Sheep (or Fuzzy Hens as he prefers) kept trying to explain the Rule of Twenty Sevenths. It was beyond me.

Finley suggested I use the fence to do my proportioning, although he says he prefers using the fence to scratch his rear ear.

Zoe the Apenzeller Spitzhauben hen and the yet unnamed White Crested Black Polish rooster just gave me a look like I am crazy...and of course, I am the Crazy Chicken Lady around these parts. If you have a good name for him, I'm taking suggestions.

For more Rule of Thirds visit Sunday Stills!

LOVE your polish hen...We had so many specialty chickens when we lived on the farm... I really miss those days...I suggested we maybe get a little farm again when the house sells...I wasn't getting a big response!!! Ha! Those were happy days though... living off the land, Fun, Fun, xoxo~Kathy ~ @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

Love your unusual chickens! We went to the fair yesterday and were admiring all of the unusual varieties of poultry... the ones like yours were naturally favorites.

What variety is the first one? My roo from last weeks Sunday Stills looks an awful lot like yours (only younger) but he was a "Mystery Chicken" so we're still trying to ID him. I was thinking Red Sex Link (Delaware X RIR), but I saw one at the fair that looked like him, a Columbian Plymouth Rock.

I've always thought those Polish chickens were magnificent looking; my aunt raised them when we were kids. You take great photos of your livestock, they must be very cooperative subjects.

Oh, Finley is TOO CUTE!! Great pics! Hmmm...a name for the male...something about "Clarence" speaks to me. ;) However, I'm confident that you can come up with something pretty clever if you're the one who came up with Finley! :)

Cool shots, one thing I'm learning since starting Sunday Stills is all the different types of roosters and hens out there, too cool..:-)
