I caught my neighbour's chickens on the sidewalk on their way to invade our garden Smile They would have destroyed my seedlings as we do not have a fence around our property Smile The combs looks over saturated but it was not me - it is how the camera recorded it Smile
Thank you so much to Kathryn and Isabel for giving my strawberry photo their precious UA's and to all the comments and votes.
Have a wacky Wednesday Smile

These chickens look like they have some serious intent, Herman. Did you save your garden? Maybe you need to chase them away with some hot sauce. I think the combs kind of do look like that.

Why did the chicken cross the road, roll in the mud and cross the road again? - Because he was a dirty double-crosser Grin

A fine line up of the usual suspects but I wouldn't like to try and pick out the suspect though.

I know what you mean about reds. They've ALWAYS ended up oversaturated for me, even in the days of film! Except on slide film Smile

I see that these chickens are as unruly as reds in photos.

Excellent evidence gathering of the usual suspects, Herman Grin
