    Hello everybody! Welcome to the Waterfowl Contest!
    This is a joint contest between Chicken_boy and I, so we will alternate posting. We will also be the judges. The awards will be thus: Best of Show (will recieve a charcoal drawing of their bird if they want it), and 1st place and runner up in each category (ducks, geese, etc.).

    These are the categories:
    Ducks
    Geese
    Swans
    Wild Birds
    Other Waterfowl

    RULES:
    1) can be any sort of waterfowl (ducks, geese, etc) but please say which type.
    2) wild birds will be welcome, but please mention that it is wild and place it in the Wild Birds category.
    3) Include breed
    4) Include (if possible) age and gender
    5) Include (if possible) name
    6) If you like you can include the bird's "story" (ie, how you got it, special features/habits it may have, etc.) for bonus points! Even a small note about its personality will be fine!
    7) judging will be based upon breed representation, photo quality, and beauty/cuteness of bird. And, as mentioned above, you can get bonus for a story.
    8) This is the most important rule of all: HAVE FUN! I know that lots of BYC people have waterfowl, so here's your chance to show them!
    9) ends Aug. 1

    Note: If anyone would like to donate a prize, please joint PM both Chicken_boy and I. It would be much appriciated!
