    1st place PRIZE~ [​IMG]
    The Chicken Swing
    [​IMG]
    Description:
    Are you wondering if this thing is for real? We wondered the same thing, incredulous that chickens could actually enjoy swinging. We thought it was just a glorified roosting pole. We're happy to say that we were wrong! This thing is a revelation: chickens seem to love it. Take a look at the video at MPC and decide for yourself! CLICK HERE

    2nd place PRIZE~ [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Description:
    We commissioned this basket specifically for backyarders!


    It's attractive and incredibly durable, and the wire that "wraps" around the basket has just enough give to help prevent egg breakage. It's pictured here with 14 large eggs, and can easily hold 18.


    Base diameter: 4.5"


    Top Diameter: 7"


    Height: 5.25"



    3rd place PRIZE~ [​IMG]

    You're Welcome!

    I can't wait to see the pictures! I hope they are better than mine, I've been trying to take chick pictures for the website. I think out of 400.....5 are decent enough to use.
