Blue Bird Brawl
Here are the contestants for the Blue Bird Brawl. The winners have been decided!
First Place: #19 - Billyj; Jersey Giant cockerel, "Elvis"
Second Place: #7 - mopargal1972; 4-month bantam Easter Egger, "Gracie"
Third Place: #11 - Jeremy; 8-month English Orpington hen, "Elizabeth"

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.
- 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!
