    This contest is for pictures of chicks, ducks, emus, quail, or any other poultry species hatching. At least one of the birds must be at least partway in the egg still. Obviously, don't go stuffing a chick/duckling/etc back in the egg for a picture, and please do not open the incubator while photographing, as 'fanning the lid' increases chance of hatch problems.
    Please read the full rules detailed below.

    1st Place:
    Chicken Tea Towel, donated by @Yorkshire Coop

    2nd Place:
    6 month Premium Feather Membership (PFM) donated by BYC
    Contest Rules:
    • This contest is open to all BYC members, but the physical prizes can only be shipped inside the continental United States. Members outside the US that win a physical prize will receive a PFM instead.
    • Some prizes will not be awarded to winners under the age of 18, for example, hatching eggs. In that situation, a PFM will be substituted for the prize.
    • Your submission must be your own photograph, under a year old, and never been entered in other contests.
    • Maximum of two (2) entries per person. An entry consists of one (1) photograph.
    • No editing other than basic cropping and similar processes. We want to see the world through your eyes, er, camera lens; not through the excessive use of editing tools. No captions either, please.
    • To submit your entries, simply post your images in this thread.
    • Please do not open the incubator to take your picture. 'Fanning the lid' increases the chance you will have shrink wrapping or other hatch issues. We realise this is controversial, but please stay on the safe side for this contest.
    • No reptiles. I know it's tempting, but c'mon. Birds only for this contest. :lol:
    • Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges. Their decision will be final.
    • BYC Administration reserves the right to disqualify entries/posts not following the rules.
    • All BYC rules apply: Terms of Service (Rules)
    • This contest is void where prohibited.

    Obviously not an entry, but this is my favorite picture I've ever taken of a hatching chick. (and yes, it was taken through the glass) She turned out to be a great broody hen, but sadly, I lost her to a bobcat in the great chicken massacre in 2016.
