I just wanted to let you know that Chicken Run Rescue is having a photo contest for INTERNATIONAL RESPECT FOR CHICKENS DAY- MAY 4TH! Here are the rules: CHICKEN RUN RESCUE PHOTO CONTEST INTERNATIONAL RESPECT FOR CHICKENS DAY- MAY 4TH What better month than May to honor our chicken friends as they revel in the dirt and things that are green. And what better teachers than they about how to celebrate spring. It s the perfect time to speak up for the most unjustly treated beings in the world. Please join Chicken Run Rescue and United Poultry Concerns in recognizing May as International Respect for Chickens Month. We invite you to capture the beauty, joy, intelligence, dignity, agility and zany exuberance of your birds in a photograph. Twelve winning photos will be published in a calendar and winners will receive a free calendar. All of the proceeds of the calendar sales will enable us to continue to help chickens for another year. Chicken Run Rescue receives no support from any other organizations, institutions or agencies. Chicken Run Rescue is the only urban based chicken rescue and adoption organization of its kind.
