This is a photo of my sister with her pet hen sitting on her shoulder. I was able to take the photo of the chicken aligned to her face to give this startling image. This isn't a case of simply pasting a chicken onto a photograph! I deleted the background and applied an effect of horizontal lines. I though this photograph was especially suited to this contest, what with all the press coverage on battery hens. People are beginning to 'see through the eyes of battery chickens' and take notice of the harsh conditions of the battery farms. The law is changing in 2012 to accomadate these views, increasing the space per chicken in the farms and improving the conditions.
