Back in May of 2010 we introduced our Other Poultry Breeds Database. Its 10 months later and we have only a hand full of pages! wordgirl and call ducks have taken on this project and brought in some new organization of the database in an effort to make it better. But they can only do so much with very few pages! Weve seen the fantastic work that you BYCers have done with the Chicken Breeds Database, so we know you can make this great, too! These pages will be able to help hundreds probably thousands of people looking for information on all these wonderful birds! So, it is up to YOU to help us populate the database with great information and pictures! Rules: 1) If a BYC page is already created for the breed, you need to select a different breed 2) Your must have rights to the content! The information and pictures you submit must NOT be copyright protected (you can't just copy from the web without written permission from the content owner). --------AWARDS-------- To really encourage your help with building out this database were going to throw in some incentives! If you submit a very good breed page (with great pictures, information, etc.) you can earn a free GFM for you or a friend or even a $20 gift card for the BYC Store ! If your page passes our project managers inspection youll be awarded the following: 3 Month GFM for each APPROVED breed page (GFM can be gifted) A $20 BYC Store gift certificate for your 5th APPROVED submission. So, if you create 5 approved breed pages you'll get: FOUR 3 month GFMs AND a $20 BYC Gift Certificate! Here are the important pages: Main Poultry Breeds Index Submit a Poultry Breeds Page A few notes: 1) The chicken breed submissions/system will continue to be separate and can be found here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/breeds/ 2) There will not be "sub" or "simple" pages for this "Other Poultry" system. 3) Regarding copyright: "Copyright protects the particular way authors have expressed themselves.
