Mum And Baby Chickens, Lower Big Buddha Hill, Thailand Nov-2013

I saw this little family of chickens (mum and babies), and thought they’d make a good photo. Again “wildlife” doesn’t like me photographing it, I’ll have to get some tips from my friend Jon Rista.

There’s nothing to put the size in perspective, but this type of chicken is really small about the size of a European pigeon, the chicks are even smaller. I guess Thai people are generally smaller than Europeans, but still … maybe it’s an ornamental chicken and they don’t get eaten ?

    1. I was just suprised at how small they were, but chickens do vary in size and there are many many varieties … When I was a kid we had some quite big chickens, but unfortunately the fox got the better of them 😦

      1. Oooh, I have a photo on my computer of a fox standing in the middle of the road with some poor farmer’s chicken in its mouth. It was a big thing too and not afraid of us in our car at all.

  1. Someone’s pets maybe? Or maybe they just like their chickens small and that’s why they are all small also. Did you attract a lot of attention with your height?

    1. Couldn’t really tell … from what I can make out this “lower” area of the hill is for chinese … possible they are ornamental chinese chickens, possible that they are someone’s pet to eat later … And yes they didn’t like me taking pictures especially since I had to do it looking down on them through railing and off of a staircase !
