If any of the prizewinners that are receiving a painting want the actual painting, message me your address! As long as you're in the US I shouldn't have too much trouble getting it to you.
How much do you charge for paintings? I would love to send you some pics, I need stuff for my office I use for the farm.

THANK YOU to all who entered, and made judging this such a special experience.
I wish you could all have prizes because every bird was unique, from feathering to poise to character. It was a VERY close thing. I loved every entry though (literally) to let you know it was appreciated.

So, without further ado, here are our WINNERS!

CONGRATULATIONS to all winners!

Winners and Runners Up will soon receive a private message including their prize....

Look out for my future competition 'Rooster's Got Talent!'.
A little late, but thanks for the contest! I totally forgot to enter any more birds after Gus, oops! 🤦‍♀️

Now I'm going to have to tell Gussy he got the most likes in the bantam category, and his ego is already big enough as is! 🤣


It's C-O-O-P, not C-O-U-P-E!

@nuthatched, I'm still waiting to hear from you about Fenna. Let me know if you want me to use one of the pictures you already posted or new ones. Thanks!
I'm sorry , I've been busy and forgot.

I know it's blurry, she wouldn't hold still. I have other pictures if you'd prefer.

Darn, I had no idea and it’s closed! Are you going to do another one?
Well, I'd love to and it was really popular, but I can't ask people to supple prizes again!

I am doing a 'rooster's got talent' competition very soon, and hope to find some kind of prize for that.

But yes, I will do another in the near-ish future!
