Winner, Winner, Chicken….Winner.
After having had a long week of hand-feeding Sylvia the chicken and freezing weather, we had a brief moment of beautiful sunshine and the girls were more than ready to run around the yard eating whatever they could find. Booger the cat and I sat outside with them and as I fed them treats, they all started to congregate around me on the steps to our out-building. Keith, ever-ready to grab a great photo op, snapped a photo and posted it on facebook where a friend mentioned we should enter it in the “Flaunt Your Flock” photo contest that Tractor Supply Co. was running. We did. And we voted and asked people to vote, but with so many entries, we didn’t hold our breath.
Fast forward to this morning when I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing. Since it was a number I didn’t recognize, I screened it….and then squealed with delight when I listed to the voicemail from Matt, from TSC, who was calling to find out what prize I would like to choose as I’d been selected as the week 2 winner! What!? Awesome. Since our girls have been eating food like they were teenage boys, I chose the ten-pound bag of feed and container of dried meal-worm treats (the favorite delicacy to our feathered ladies) which they assured me would arrive in the mail in about a week. I’m sporting my brand-new “Sriracha” rooster tee all day in celebration.
Here’s the thing though. The weekly winners are based on the merit of the TSC judges. The overall grandprize is based on popularity….so your vote counts….and there’s still time to vote for my photo. Just CLICK ON THIS LINK (or on the photo below) and it will take you straight to the contest so you can vote for me. And, you can vote for me once every 24-hour period if you feel super motivated/dedicated.
So excited that my sweet girls got some recognition…….and some yummy food coming their way! THANK YOU Tractor Supply Co, for such a great competition and for supporting hobby farmers like myself. We appreciate all you do!
