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. Members also need to have a post count of at least 10 posts, to become eligible. The closest guess to the actual date/hour (either before or after) wins. You can only enter the contest with ONE GUESS ENTRY! If you want to lock in a specific day/hour, post it before anybody else. 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. You can change your guess as many times as you want until the end of the contest time above! To change your guess: Edit your guess post before the end of the contest 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. We will be accepting guesses until and including April 20th 2016 Most important: HAVE LOTS OF FUN!
