So…if you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been keeping up with this website very well. Thus, I decided to make a FaceBook page. Please like my page!
The calendar is available to pre-order here: http://www.coopedup.net/buy/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=176
And you can read a little bit about and see the pictures in the calendar here: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1036277/2016-byc-calendars-pre-orders-chickens-other-poultry#post_15977424
A few days ago, I mentioned that I entered the BackYard Chickens calendar contest and made the top 30 pictures. I got a message today that my picture got in the top 12 (meaning it will be on the calendar)! It’s amazing because A LOT of people entered! I don’t think the calendar is up yet, but if you are interested in buying it, you can eventually get it here: http://www.coopedup.net/buy/
On the website backyardchickens.com they made a contest. They sell calendars every year and needed pictures for it, so they asked the members to post two of their best pictures. Probably around a couple hundred people entered and I got a message this morning stating that my picture is in the top 30!. Meaning I have about a 50% chance of making it on the calendar! Hope mine made it! Here’s the picture that made it:
I finally added the new section (under “Rabbits”) “My Rabbits.” Take a look & feel free to comment!
It’s the end of the fair! I really enjoyed doing two fairs in a row, but I am happy to be done. I did much better this year than last year.
-Chickens-I got Reserved Senior, and Reserved Overall in Fitting & Showing. I got two blues and two reds in type. I won grand champion for the costume contest (my chicken was a raptor!!). I also won a superintendent’s award (an award given to the superintendent’s favorite exhibitors). And, I’m excited to say: I was the poultry judge for the Round Robin!
-Rabbits-I got 3rd for the Senior Fitting & Showing and I, somehow, beat the rabbit expert. I won Best of Class for my somewhat new rabbit in type.
-Posters-I got two reds and a white, I was a little disappointed in how I did.
-Horticulture-I got two blues, two reds, and a white.
-Photography-I got a blue.
