Strapping Young Fellow - Cockerel - NZ by 


There are hundreds of chicken breeds in existence. Domesticated for thousands of years, Distinguishable breeds of chicken have been present since the combined factors of geographical isolation and selection for desired characteristics created regional types with distinct physical and behavioral traits passed on to their offspring. The physical traits used to distinguish chicken breeds are size, plumage color, comb type, skin color, number of toes, amount of feathering, earlobe color, egg color, and place of origin. They are also roughly divided by primary use, whether for eggs, meat, or ornamental purposes, and with some considered to be dual-purpose.
Living in a rural area and in the country away from the city has some great advantages. My daily walks always provide me with something exciting to capture through my lens. I found this strapping young man wondering round with his mates in the paddock. His plumage is magnificent.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
