    Wow, these are awesome! How did you get them to stay still long enough to get these shots? The definition is really amazing.
    I love the serious, determined looks on their faces/in their eyes.

    The top I think is a hen Americana or Auracana breed, Not sure about the bottom except that it looks like a rooster. The pictures are good but they just seem to conventional to me. They look like any other pic from a chicken magazine or something.

    Thanks Frankie and Will. They are rather conventional. My intention was practice at catching them as sharp as I could poviding all of their head bobbing and quick sharp movement. Considering my intention Will, the fact that they remind you of a shot in a chicken magazine......is taken as a compliment.

    Paul, I don't mind the pose. These guys are really hard to shoot tack sharp! I think you nailed it quite sharp here. Good work.

    Wow I think these shots are great, I wish I could get shots as sharp as these. I think the third photo is the best, Well done. Joe

    I've never spent this much time looking at chickens/roosters up close...they're kinda neat. Great work. You definitely achieved sharp.

    Thanks everyone, I used my 75-300 at about 160mm and f5, really was not sure just how shap I could get it. Just was not enough light out for f8 or so. Well off to play with the little lens I picked up today....my first prime 1.7 50mm. So far it is very sharp.

    I don't think you could draw them and get them as sharp as these are...too plain or not, they are excellent studies. Good doings!
