    Welcome to 100 Pictures of Our Flocks! For general information about the project, check out this page!


    100 Pictures of Our Flocks is a project for which the community enters pictures that match themes, the goal being to check every theme off. For this project, I have decided not to include an 'end date', and instead allow the project to keep going until each and every theme is checked off!

    Everyone is welcome to add their pictures once the project begins. I (and project helpers Mr MKK FARMS and anyone else listed on the project page) will decide whether or not a picture fits a theme, after which the picture will be moved to this page. Please do not enter pictures into the project if you don't want them to be listed there. All pictures will have the username of the person who entered it and a link to the post that person made on this thread.



    Because it is a community project, I have just a few rules and guidelines to follow to make sure all goes smoothly.


    1. All pictures that are entered must be taken on or after March 1, 2013. Pictures taken before then do not qualify for the project!

    2. Pictures must have at least one of the following in it: a chicken, a duck, a goose, a Guinea fowl, a turkey, a Peafowl, a ratite, or any of their young. Pictures can have people or other animals in them, but it is suggested that the focus is on one of the listed species.

    3. If it isn't obvious by the picture that it fits a theme, you are welcome to write a brief story about what was going on at the time and why it fits.

    4. Of course, all posts and pictures must follow BYC's rules and terms of service.


    As an added note, we will only be accepting the first 3 fitting pictures for each theme. For themes that have an '-est' word in them (such as number 98, the stinkiest stink-eye), we'll collect 3 or more entries and then make a poll to decide the 'winner' of the theme as a community. Of course, there are no prizes for your picture winning the poll or being accepted into the project other than bragging rights. :)



    Here is our checklist:

    For this project, we want a picture of:

    And finally, if you think you would make a good project helper, PM me and I'll see what I think. ;)




    A special thanks to cluckcluckluke for the idea of making this community project.

    You can enter as many pictures as you'd like. :) I'm accepting up to 3 pictures for each theme so that everyone has an opportunity to enter if they want.
