    I'm started this mainly to be able to see lots of pictures of these all in one spot. Here are the rules:

    1. All BYC rules apply
    2. Pictures must be submitted on or before September 1, 2012
    3. Voting will occur by polls between September 2 and October 1, 2012. Judging will be according to the standard where applicable. I will pick the top 10 for each category to put into the poll to make the voting easier. (I will not be entering my own birds and I have taken livestock judging classes...)
    4. Entrys must include age of chickens in picture.
    5. You can submit up to three pictures of your entry. (I recommend a side shot and 1 close up of each side of head). Limit of 3 entries per category per person. If you are entering a single bird in more then one category, just list the categories with the one entry. A single chicken cannot be entered twice, except for the chick photo (you can't enter a chicken in both the juvenile and 20+ weeks categories, we will be on the honor system though because I won't be able to tell)
    6. One enty per post-we will be using the post number as identification.
    7. WInners get: Bragging rights.

    Please remember we can only judge what we can see, if you are entering for comb, please make sure you include pictures of both sides of it. The Color category needs a full side shot.

    Categories:

    1. Best group of chicks (under 5 days old)
    2. Best Juvenile-pullet 5-14 weeks
    3. Best Juvenile-cockeral 5-14 weeks
    4. Best Comb-Roo 20 weeks or older
    5. Best Comb-Hen 20 weeks or older
    6. Best Crest-Roo 20 weeks or older
    7. Best Crest-Hen 20 weeks or older
    8. Best Color-Hen 20 weeks or older
    9. Best Color-Roo 20 Weeks or older
    10. Largest Roo-20 weeks or older, must include a reference in the pic, like a ruler in one of the shots

    There will also be best of show for hen and roo, everyone will automatically be entered.

    There is no 15-19 week category to encourage people to wait and enter the mature category. I initially was going to have only the chick photo and the mature group but decided to do a single juvenile group for the people who won't have mature chickens by the time the contest ends.


    I've decided not to do eggs due to color being so dependant on photography technique and lighting.

    A link to the standard will be provided to aid in judging.

    Sample Entry: (If I was actually in the contest I would include a close up side shot of both sides of his head).

    The contest is going on for a couple more months so that everyone will be able to enter their chickens if they want to. [​IMG]
