These were some of my neighbourhood chickens when I was living in Jogja. Yes, they have been painted. Yes, it was done on purpose...
Chicken is by far the most common meat to be eaten in town. No farmed birds here, only free ranging, garbage eating, florescent poultry.
But such changes weren't just for the sake of aviary fashion, it was also a way of distinguishing your future dinner from the neighbours.
This pic has been sharpened, colours saturated, and blur has been added to the background to reduce distraction.

Funny and sexy ... and disturbing. But at least there's a utility to the colors. The photo is well composed ... the balance of the two elements is pleasing.

This pic didn't receive the critiques it deserves ! I really like it, much more since I read your note.
I took pics of chickens in Marseille today (1M inhabitants !)...

I love fashion chicks, especially as they strut there stuff on the catwalk. Their poise, elegance- and those legs!
Nice shot Alex, crisp, clear and with vibrant colors. I've been to Indonesia numerous times, but never seen this practise. Very intersting!
