    Thanks for the comments - always welcome.
This is a free range bird so the damaged beak is probably from a fight.
Surprisingly hard to shoot - the darn thing does not stay still and the light was not the best. I try not to go over iso80 with my FZ30.
After pp I noticed the fine white feathers and they almost seemed unreal - I thought maybe I had over-sharpened so I went back to the original but that is just how they are. I will try the darker background as suggested.
I was only about 7ft away which made him all the harder to track :-) I was sitting at a picnic table where I got my mother/daughter shot so it gave me some support.

    Nice chicken! Good focus and DOF. In my favs. How far away from the subject were you? Just wondering...

    Uncommonly fine detail in an otherwise common bird. Selectively darken that background a few shades and you'd have a blue ribbon of chicken shots.
