Are Your Chicken Molting?
We Want Your Pics!


It's that time of year again where our birds start their metamorphosis into... well, okay, they don't turn into anything, but it sure is interesting to see them go through their molting process and leaving feathers all over the place!

For more information on your flock's annual molt, see here:​

How to enter
The contest is simple, post pictures of your birds in the worst part of their molt. Once we're past the molting season our esteemed panel of judges will pick a loser... er... winner!



The rules are simple too:
  1. Must be your chicken.​
  2. No picture limit, post as many pictures of your molting chicken.​
  3. If you have more than one chicken to enter, do them in separate posts.​
  4. Must be your pictures that were taken THIS YEAR, so probably within the last few weeks and over the next few months (depending on your climate, birds, etc.).​
  5. ALL pictures MUST be uploaded to BYC and not hosted on other image sites, personal websites, etc.
  6. Molt pictures submitted to our previous molt contests are not eligible for this contest.​
Good luck to you and your ugly... er.. molting chickens!



Prizes
If entries warrant, we will have two categories, "Frizzle" and "Non-Frizzles" (on account of Frizzles having some pretty bad molting genes and winning this contest for a few years
), and the following prizes will be awarded to both categories.
