Welcome to the Grumpiest Chicken of 2012 photo contest! The winner will be announced on New Year's Eve! The contest is open only to active swappers in good standing on the Paypal/Hatching Egg Swap. The contest is now open for entries and will close at 6pm EST on December 30th, 2012. Once the entries are closed, we will open up the voting process to all of BYC. The photo that receives the most votes before Midnight EST on New Year's Eve will win. I will announce the winner as soon as I have tallied the votes that night. (I am leaving it open longer due to the time difference and to ensure that the West Coasters - like me, will all get a chance to enjoy the photos and vote.) The winner will get to choose 6++ hatching eggs of any of my chicken breeds (Spring delivery or sooner) OR a starter mealworm set which includes the box, worms, beetles, pupae and soil w/eggs. PM your photo to me - MrsMoonCat DO NOT POST IT ON THIS THREAD. Along with your grumpy photo, I need your BYC user name and your first real name. That PM with your photo will be your entry - a post on this thread will not qualify. I will add the photos to THIS post for voting purposes. Please do not use any photos that will identify you or your farm/business. The photos don't have to be recent, just taken some time in 2012. Each swapper may enter up to THREE (3) photos - they don't have to be the same bird or they can be if you want. Please feel free to ask any questions if there is something that is unclear and GOOD LUCK! VOTING HAS ENDED #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 #14 #15 *I apologize for the varying sizes in the photos, I added them to the post as they were submitted - except for putting the entry number on them.
