Seeing Chickens Fighting Is Just Usual. But What This Singaporean Photographer Discovered Really Shocked Me! WOW!

When we think of animals joining in a show to exhibit their beauty and vigor, we would always consider fluffy dogs, furry cats, or highly accessorized ponies. But in a recent documentation of a Singaporean photographer in the name of Ernest Goh, he created a series of images featuring the diversity and glamour of chickens which are often neglected.

Ernest Goh, explored the lands of Malaysia and found something too interesting – the Ayam Seramas – a variety of chickens which is specifically known for its beauty.

According Ernest, these chickens “were not bred for consumption but purely for ornamental reasons.”ayam-seramas-chicken-photography-ernest-goh-8
