    It's that time of year again where our birds start their metamorphosis into... well, okay, they don't turn into anything, but it sure is interesting to see them go through their molting process and leaving feathers all over the place! [​IMG]

    The contest is simple: Post pictures of your birds in the worst part of their molt. Once we're past the molting season our esteemed panel of judges will pick a loser... er... winner! [​IMG]

    We will have two categories:

    "Frizzle" and "All Other Breeds" (on account of Frizzles having some pretty bad molting genes and winning this contest for a few years [​IMG]).

    Prizes:

    There will be two winners per category, the first place winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the BYC Store and the second place winners will each receive a free 6 month Golden Feather Membership for themselves or a friend.

    The rules are simple too:
    1. Must be your chicken
    2. Must be a picture taken THIS YEAR, so probably within the last few weeks and over the next couple months (depending on your climate, birds, etc.)
    3. Must say which category you're entering in

    Good luck to you and your ugly... er.. molting chickens! [​IMG]


    Here is the winner of our previous contest, entered by TheSpiceGirls

    LOL! What fun! I knew it was a good idea to take out the camera! Normally-handsome, 5 year-old, free-range Rhode Island Red Peter was so humiliated to have his picture taken when he looked like he was ready for the soup pot! He is looking much more comely now, but this was taken on 6-20-15:
