    When will this contest end? "Once we're past the moulting season" doesn't mean much to me, since I am in the UK and also since my chickens decide to moult at any time they like! A season? They laugh in my face when I mention it [​IMG]

    One of mine is half-feathered, so I might enter her, but the group have been moulting all summer at various points!

    Come on... I left it vague for a reason! [​IMG]

    I'd say the contest will go at least for the next 2-3 months to make sure we get a lot of submissions!

    This is Phoebe, my 10 month old bantam cochin Frizzle. Poor Phoebe. She's not a model Frizzle to begin with, but now she's just really pathetic.

    This was Phoebe when she was a little more respectable looking (with her sisters, Monica & Rachel in March & June, respectively):

    And as of August/September, 2010. Not pretty. Not at all pretty!

    My poor bald Australorp hen has looked pitiful for over a year. Bald backed from being over roostered.......she is finally molting. I missed the worst of it.
