    Heritage Breeds are great, usually friendly, time-honored chickens. Lots of people have them. So why not have a contest about them?!


    Rules and Info:

    1) The winners will be announced on June 1, in a seperate thread.

    2) Sorry, there's no prizes- if you have a prize you could donate, please PM me.

    3) There will be two honorable mentions, a 3rd prize, 2nd prize, and 1st prize.

    4) The judges will decide on the winners by voting.

    5) Chickens will be judged on sticking to the breed, photo quality, and beauty.

    6) Anyone who wants to judge please PM me.

    7) Please include name, approx. age, and most importantly breed of the chicken, whether it is a hen or roo, and temperament (if possible).

    Some of the other contests I started are:
    EE Contest
    RIR contest
    Sequence contest
    Chix Pix (ended, see winners here )
