    Ever thought of doing a BYC calendar? You could do something with say, the Pic of the week, or maybe run a contest to get photos.....

    It would be neat to have a BYC chicken calender to keep track of my hatching eggs on [​IMG] hehehe

    Was just curious if this has been thought of yet or not... since you have the t-shirts, etc.

    My family has blessed me with the two calenders available. One is the 'The art of Chicken' I'm at work so can't look at the other. But I've seen some great photos here. and I do decorate the laundry room with the old pictures from the calendars. I know that the magazine "Backyard Poultry" has a contest.

    In Nov. or Dec. I will have an all chicken calendar available on redbubble. I'm also going to do an all wild duck, all horse, all ect. ones. A BYC one would be cool though. All of the cutest chicken photos on BYC.

    I would buy one. I think a contest for pic submissions would be cool.

    Printing a calendar for 10,000+ members is kind of expensive. You could always do it in .PDF format for members to download and print on their own with a color printer.

    I already buy calendars like the one entitled "Extraordinary Chickens." I would want to see pictures like those -- fancy poultry in nice backgrounds, suitable for hanging next to my desk at work or something, just for fun.

    A .PDF calendar format would be great for extending to projects like a "Mens' Calendar" (just the roosters ^_^), a calendar with fuzzy chicks, or a duck or goose calendar.

    You could also compete for seasonal pictures featuring chickens celebrating the holidays, such as a patriotic photo for July (or in various seasonal scenes so that the calendar is appropriate for everyone's beliefs and nationalities).
