Chicken variety contest to celebrate the EZ Miser kit

EZ Miser built from a kitCongratulations to Robin and Eva, who won free chicken waterers as part of our last contest!  Since we've finally perfected the EZ Miser enough that we're selling it in kit form (10% off this week!), we decided to celebrate with another contest.

To enter, email with one or more photos and your answer to this question: "What is your favorite chicken variety and why?"  To make this round a bit fairer, we'll be judging the winners ourselves so it doesn't turn into a popularity contest.

The fine print: All entries must reach my inbox by Sunday (September 15) at midnight.  Be sure to send photos one at a time if they're larger than 2 MB apiece.  Mark and I will choose winners based on quality of the photos and written explanation.  All photos and text will become the property of Anna Hess, which means I might share them with readers via our blogs or ebooks.

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!

(And don't forget to spread the word among your chicken-keeping friends about our new EZ Miser kits.  We learned from our mistakes last time around and have a bunch of kits stockpiled, so you won't see a decline in post quality if we have to fill a deluge of orders.  Thanks for your help keeping Walden Effect running!)

I love my Rhode Island Red Rooster. He keeps an eye on everything that goes on in my yard and yet still eats out of my hand. He is big and beautiful.
