Maine’s Best Roosts Contest
Got a chicken coop that really rocks? Enter the Maine Poultry Coop Contest, and you could win both accolades and cash.

Poultry owners are invited to enter a photo and description of their coops by Dec. 31. Prizes of $200, $100, and $50 will go to the top three entries; fourth and fifth place winners will receive a subscription to Backyard Poultry magazine.
