    Hi, everyone!

    I'm going to start with pictures I particularly liked. Remember, keep in mind, this is judged by how special the picture and the bird were. This does not mean, if you weren't picked, that your birds aren't special. Everyone's birds are special in their own way. Nothing can change that. So before I reveal the results, I'd like to lead a big round of applause for every single bird on the planet!

    OK, that being said and done, here are pictures that, although might not have won, particularly caught my eye.

    Brahmapooter and her roosting flock

    Very nice chickens, Brahmapooter! Lovely rooster, and yes, that is not a fence. [​IMG]

    shelleyd2008 and Gertie

    This picture particularly caught my eye. Gertie is a beautiful bird, and she looks so inquisitive here. The picture is captivating. Wonderful!

    Justino and Penny the pullet

    Bright, cheery picture! I love the sidepuffs on Penny! Wonderful bird!

    ninjapoodles and her chickens

    Gosh, you brought in so many beautiful pictures, I can't even choose one! Each one has it's own personality. I just cannot choose.

    Balfour Girl and Punkin


    Even though this breaks the 'only chickens' rule, I just wanted to put this up here in memory of Punkin. May her spirit rest in peace in the happy chicken heaven, where she may eat nothing but her favorite treat for eternity!

    SterlingAcres and his chicks


    Adorable! What more can I say?

    herechickchick and the flock


    I really like this picture. Are those game chickens? Either way, lovely birds!

    Year of the Rooster and her chicks


    Two wonderful pictures to choose from! The sebrights are stunning too, but I had to go with the peeps!

    ruth and 'Waiting for the Bus'


    This pic is especially entertaining. I just had to give it recognition!

    Nifty-Chicken and the REAL meaning of Free Range!


    That is intense. I'm sure the people who look at this photo will be divided into two groups: Those who laugh and those who fell to their knees and prayed that those chickens don't get hit by a passing truck! I can't tell whether these chickens are brave or bird-brain. Either way, this picture is cool. Just do us all a favor and make sure your birds are safe!

    Attack Chicken and Kernal


    Lovely, proud-looking roo!

    CovenantCreek and the Pumkpin Hens


    I chose this picture for it's hilarity. I have never seen chickens carving a pumpkin before.

    ChickenBuddy and Foxy


    This chicken struts like she owns the place, and she probably does!

    scubagirl and all her pictures

    Again, I cannot possibly choose from all of your wonderful pictures. Each says something about Free-Ranging that is very difficult to capture. I wish I could choose them all!
