Think your urban chicken is the fanciest or the funniest? Let the folks over at Purina Mills know, as they're holding America's Fanciest and Funniest Chicken Photo Contest. If your photo wins, you could get a years' supply of feed for your lucky bird.
They even put together a contest video promotion.
From a quick spin I just took through the photos already submitted, I know that any of you dear readers already have better looking photos published to your blogs and/or facebook albums. Why not enter to win?
In addition to the photo contest, Purina Mills is also hosting a series of "Chick Days" at dealers across the country where experts will be available to offer advice and guidance on how to raise chickens from freshly hatched chicks through laying, including details on proper nutrition to provide the best eggs.
To find a participating dealer, check the BetterAnimals.com store locator and give them a call to see when they're holding their own Chick Day.
I just checked to see which Purina-stocking store's closest to us, and it's Concord Feed way over in Concord (about 40 miles away). Maybe there's one closer to you?
