    How To Enter:

    To enter the contest, you need (to do) a few things:

    1) Start a thread in the Pictures & Stories of My Chickens forum section and show and tell us about your flock, coop etc. For the non-poultry owners here, we'd allow you to share pics of previous flocks and tell us which breeds, etc you would like to keep.

    2) Reply to this thread and include a link to your thread you started above (which must be a new thread) and also enter the date/time you think we'll hit the magic number in the format 1/12/2015 6:00 pm

    3) Have a post count of at least 10 posts

    WE WILL BE ACCEPTING GUESSES UNTIL April 20th 2016 (04/20/2016)

    1. To enter the contest, in addition to your guess, you need to post a link to a thread you started in the Pictures & Stories of My Chickens forum section. Post some pics of your flock and or coop and tell us a bit more about them. Members who do not own any poultry at the moment, can share either previous flocks, or tell us which breeds they'd be interested in getting.
    2. Members also need to have a post count of at least 10 posts, to become eligible.
    3. The closest guess to the actual date/hour (either before or after) wins.
    4. You can only enter the contest with ONE GUESS ENTRY!
    5. If you want to lock in a specific day/hour, post it before anybody else.
    6. You can change your guess to a different day/hour IF IT IS NOT TAKEN but if you choose another ay you allow someone else to take your previous guess.
    7. You can change your guess as many times as you want until the end of the contest time above!
    8. To change your guess: Edit your guess post before the end of the contest
    9. All guesses must be on the HOUR (i.e., NO MINUTES). If you entered minutes into your guess your guess will be rounded up or down to the closest hour.
    10. We will be accepting guesses until and including April 20th 2016
    11. Most important: HAVE LOTS OF FUN!

    You can find the current number of members on the BYC homepage (look in the right side of the homepage).
