Billy Bowlegs III with his chicken roost
Series 1577, Negatives
Accompanying note: "Billy Bowlegs III's chickens roost in the live oak pictured above. The smooth metal sheet wrapped around trunk of the tree keeps the coons and opossums from climbing the tree to catch his chickens. The chickens walk of the board leaning against the metal, and fly up to the bar of wood that Billy has his hand on, and then walk up into the tree to roost."
