Our Most Photogenic bird

Meet Roger – our Plymouth Rock hen. (And, yes, Roger is a girl. Ginger and Pepper are responsible for the name. They dubbed her “Roger” after a character in The Great Escape.)

Roger is a beautiful chicken and one of our rescue birds. She’s a steady egg layer and extremely good-natured. But, what sticks out most in my mind about Roger is how much she likes to have her picture taken. I find chickens, in general, hard to photograph. They’re constantly moving. They don’t like you getting too close to them. But Roger is different. Roger holds a pose. Roger likes to get close to the camera. Roger looks like she’s really enjoying the experience. And, as a result, I usually end up with better pictures of Roger than any of our other birds.

Thank you, Roger. I appreciate that.
