It's that time of year again where our birds start their metamorphosis into... well, okay, they don't turn into anything, but it sure is interesting to see them go through their molting process and leaving feathers all over the place!
The contest is simple: Post pictures of your birds in the worst part of their molt. Once we're past the molting season our esteemed panel of judges will pick a loser... er... winner!
We will have two categories: "Frizzle" and "All Other Breeds" (on account of Frizzles having some pretty bad molting genes and winning this contest for the past two years ).
There will be one winner per category and each will receive a free 6 month GFM for themselves or a friend.
The rules are simple too:
- Must be your chicken
- Must be a picture taken THIS YEAR, so probably within the last few weeks and over the next couple months (depending on your climate, birds, etc.)
- Must say which category you're entering in
Good luck to you and your ugly... er.. molting chickens!
