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!

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!

We will have two categories: "Frizzle" and "All Other Breeds" (on account of Frizzles having some pretty bad molting genes and they really need their own category!

).

There will be one winner per category and each will receive a free 6 month GFM for themselves or a friend.


The rules are simple too:

  1. Must be your chicken
  2. Must be a picture taken THIS YEAR, so probably within the last few weeks and over the next couple months (depending on your climate, birds, etc.)
  3. Must say which category you're entering in


Good luck to you and your ugly... er.. molting chickens!

Would a picture taken in January count, since it was this year even though it was more than a few weeks ago? I had a hen go almost completely bald in January and I have a picture of her wearing a pink dress I made to keep her warm. :lol: I didn't think to get a picture of her before I put the dress on, though, so all you can really see is her pin-feathered wings.

ETA: Oops, I guess I wasn't reading very thoroughly. I just noticed the title of the thread. Nevermind. ;)

Gosh, that chicken looks ready for the pot! Darn, I had one that looked pretty rough, but all my chickens are just about done with their molting now.

Oh my gosh! Is this what my flock is gonna look like? They are starting their first molt. My rooster has lost only his tail feathers so far. I'm a little scared for them. Do they make chicken sweaters?
