Is the composition work with all distracting element here? I'm not very satisfied here, maybe because the angle... I will upload another shoot with different angle.(I put in mod section)

I personally like the point of view, but like everything in the art world it is very subjective and open to criticism from all directions.

Have you sharpened this? it seems a little over sharpened. I like the three sizes of birds, that works well, but the hen at the front does not seem sharp but the colours are lovely and the background and floor is very busy to the point of distraction but as you wanted to get all three birds in focus that is difficult to avoid. The wonky angle doe not bother me and helps put the chickens in a better position to each other. Are they your chickens? If so have another play but maybe encourage them onto grass with a less distracting background, get right down to their level and decide where your focal point is going to be. Have fun. Jude

It looks oversharpened, for me that makes it hard to look at. The grains on the ground will make sharpening very critical, and they will tend to make even moderate sharpening appear extreme. Try sharpening the fowl only, and not the grains? The composition is not an issue for me.

The image shown here is better than the one under Modifications, Muhamad. It's the angle of your shooting that I think is important.
You have some beautiful chickens here, but shooting them from a standing position will never give you a pleasing image. You need to get down to their level, or at least as far as you can.
You have probably heard about photographers lying on their bellies and steadying the camera with their elbows on the ground? If the animal or bird is worried about you doing that, then just be patient, and they will get used to you. Put a sheet or blanket on the ground in case you lie in any mess. They may even come towards you out of sheer curiosity. Now you have your picture.
I don't think the pecking motion of the chickens has helped you here because the heads will have been moving all the time, and since you have little control over your camera phone, it will be hard to get an image without the heads blurred.
I agree about this image being oversharpened, and it's the grain in particular that reveals this.
Pamela.

Thank you all. Now I know what is wrong. It's not the angle but oversharpened.
