Are you swearing at us "goura sheepmakeri" to you too! Lovely bird, nicely taken sharp and the fact you have come down to her eye level helps the viewer to engage with this image. See that white pop on the bottom? I wonder if you cropped up a bit more, then crop in at the right a bit more if the image would be stronger...try it and see.
I listened to your advice, it's much better
I like it too.

Nice , it is sharp, the pov engages us and the tonal values are good. Light source easily seen and complimentary dof.

You do have a bit of a lean and it is irrelevant because the entire focus is on that handsome brute of a gander. You have done well with the dof and the other chickens in the background only give a soft whisper of presence. I like this, the exposure on the gander is perfect as is the sharpness. The border does not scream out at me and compliments the photo in feminine softness.

Love his expression, wouldn't want to get any closer.
Now about that green stripe right across the bottom?! It is an artistic decision on your part to leave it in as it implies we are peeking into this handsome brutes world, it says PRIVATE, do not enter, yet thanks to your lens we have entered. It is artistic license to have left it there. The alternative would be to crop tighter to really show us his personality and this would be possible simply because your focus is dead on sharp. Good exposure with all detail showing and sharpness on the eyes which is critical in portraiture. Try a portrait format too to give him more nobility, which he already possesses. He is a most handsome fellow and looks like he's in love with your lens, or you. Great eye contact. Nice post.
I think the square format is a good compromise
A simple gate with a strong statement thanks to all the supporting greenery and that warm tone is quite exciting. Level, well balanced , nicely seen, sharp, good tonal ranges and nicely contrasted. Looks to me like a piece of heaven.
