    I so hope I get to enter this but we'll have to see if I get a broody. One of my buff Orpingtons has been considering it as well as our golden laced sebright. They're not quite committed yet though.

    I have two questions if I may regarding the soaps does this include the egg soap? And is this the only contest that will have the soaps as a prize?

    I believe the egg soap was made for this donation. @Sahwithchicks And yes, this will be the only contest offering soap as a prize.

    This is little Cookie. She was my daughter's little hen that she specifically picked out of the bin at tractor supply when we first got chickens (the only bantam we had). She was a broody extraordinaire. Unfortunately, we found her dead the other day in a hiding spot, once again trying to go broody. So, in a tribute to her, these are my two entries.

    I have a salmon favorelle that has gone broody, but quit, now she is acting broody again. I have 17 chicks coming in the mail next week. I'm going to see if she will adopt some. Hopefully she will!
    I love the pics. everyone! So adorable! [​IMG]
  9. Just to be certain: as long as the photo hasn't been entered in a contest, it can have been posted on BYC before?
