Celebrity Chickens

My neighbor, Ashley, works in film production. She works on all kind of projects from movies to reality television shows. Today she was working on a TV ad campaign for Tractor Supply Co. Apparently Tractor Supply is promoting their backyard chicken accessories. In order to properly recommend their range of accessories, they wanted to film urban backyard chickens. Ashly [brilliantly] suggested our chickens as urban animal candidates and she, the camera operator and the client were soon in my backyard filming.

Roberta gave them some nice shots as she piddled around in the nests, anxious to lay her egg, but feeling a bit unsettled by all the attention. Overall though, her performance, as well as the others' performances were exceptional, might I even say, inspiring. We'll see about the 2011 Oscar nominations.
