Build it for your flock contest

Chicken coopOur last two chicken-related contests have been so well received (with entries still trickling in even though they're over), so I decided to give you one more opportunity to win free stuff and share your chicken adventures.

To enter, email with one or more photos of something special you've built for your chickens.  Your entry can be a coop, a homemade incubator, an automatic feeder, or even your spin on one of our kits.  (Or anything else you can think of!)  If you want to take a minute to write about how you built your chicken attraction, I'll be more likely to share your photo on the blog, but text isn't mandatory for this contest.

The fine print:
All entries must reach my inbox by Sunday (October 6) at midnight.  Be sure to send photos one at a time if they're larger than 2 MB apiece.  Mark will choose winners based on quality of the photos.  All photos and text will become the property of Homemade chicken feederAnna Hess, which means I might share them with readers via our blogs or ebooks (but I don't mind if you keep the photos up on your website or use them in any way you want).

Winners: The grand-prize winner will receive your choice of a premade
EZ Miser or a 4 pack EZ Miser kit, and the second-place winner will choose between a 3 pack DIY kit, 1 Avian Aqua Miser Original, or a 2 pack EZ Miser kit.  I look forward to receiving your entries and to sharing clean water with your flock!

This contest is brought to you by the EZ Miser, now available on Amazon in both premade and kit form.
