Chicken Little?

While not particularly exotic like some birds you will see on WBW, these are nevertheless some mighty pretty "birds"!  And, since they came from different parts of the world...well, I think they qualify for inclusion!

These first 4 photos were taken in Ireland, in Connemara, in April of last year.
Cock of the Walk?

The Rooster and his Woman

Hey!  I'm watching you!

Girls, how many time have I told you - Don't take candy from strangers!
This last photo was taken in Missouri, at the SIL's house...I think these birds are related!
That's my cousin!

Linking to World Bird Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday.

Great pictures! I'm really laughing that we both posted photos of chickens this week. I really do like to see chickens outside their pens. Thanks for sharing.
