  1. ChestnutRidge

    What birds to include:
    - This contest is for chickens only.
    - One entry per contestant. (If you post pics of multiple birds, be sure to say which pictures comprise your official entry!)
    - Show hens or roos. You can show chicks, but they should be fully feathered, not fuzzy butts. [​IMG]
    - Birds should be Andalusian blue, as opposed to self-blue/lavender. This means a nice, consistent “blue” with darker edging or lacing. (When drafting this post, I came upon this recent thread you might reference, from post #8 and down.)

    Judging will be based on:
    > Overall appearance of health & vigor
    > “Blue” appearance and lacing
    > BYC user preference!
