    WINNERS ANNOUNCED post #150

    This contest is brought to you by our BYC Sponsors

    (click to view & support them)

    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 $30 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 missesball

    This is poor Blueberry at the start of July (our winter here in the Southern Hemisphere). She was miserable! We had a very mild Autumn so the girls moulted quite late. Blueberry spent a lot of time in the coop staying out of the wind. She is a British Tailed Araucana, though in New Zealand we just call them Lavender Araucanas (Lavender is the most common variant).

    Even though I don't have any bad molting pictures these sure are some great ones! (Or should I say, terrible ones? [​IMG]).

    It looks so uncomfortable. She is like this ALL over , her breast, her fluff, her head. I wish I could have gotten all of it in one picture
