    Hi all, as some of you may know i run a poultry rescue centre in Belgium....we're slowly getting more and more 'known' thanks to facebook :D we're always looking for ways to help raise a bit of money to feed all the animals here (we dont just help poultry, we also take in sheep, goats,pigs, rabbits, guineapigs etc....) so someone has given me the idea to make and sell christmas cards (with a small 'advertisement' for the rescue center on the back to spread our name a bit more in the local area) but ive been looking through my photos and dont seem to have any nice 'snowy' christmas pics of animals..... does anyone here have some photos that they wouldnt mind us using this year? preferably snowy scenes including chickens, ducks, turkeys or so? we're looking to make around 100 cards this year 'to try it out'...maybe 5 different designs? so need 5 'scenes' i have 1 photo of my own (my cats tangeled in christmassy decorations ) but would really like some more..... if anyone would like to help we'd be really really grateful :)
    i posted this in the random ramblings thread but think it wont get seen much there, hoping to have more luck here :)

    Well, there's no chicken in the picture, but this will be my card for this year - with the work "Christmas" spelled correctly, of course. I took this picture of my coop and run just to show my friends on FB the snow we had and mentioned that it would be a perfect Christmas Card for us if I knew how to Photoshop all the junk out of it. She doctored it up (there were 2 barbeque grills, a deck rail, and some storage containers in the original picture) and wrote the greeting on it. I had to write her back and ask for one with "Christmas" spelled correctly. [​IMG]She said she would, but I don't have it yet.

    And I have this one with a Marans exploring the snow, but the exposure is off:
