Purina Mills® announces the winners of America’s Fanciest and Funniest Chicken Photo Contest®, and Debbie Sposato, Voluntown, and her bird Heffner were named one of the fanciest.
All contestants entered pictures of their fanciest bird struttin’ his stuff or their funkiest chicken doin’ his funniest thing. Winners were selected for both the fanciest and funniest categories based on originality, overall artistic composition, use of color and photo quality.
Ten grand prize winners in each category receive a one-year’s supply of a Purina® SunFresh® Recipe poultry feed of their choice for one bird. All other winners receive recognition and a Purina® SunFresh® Recipe apron.
Raising chickens is growing in popularity as people look for ways to save on food cost and control their food choices. From the farm to the backyard, chicken raising provides a healthy and educational alternative.

“Raising poultry for eggs and meat is a tradition farm families have shared for many generations,” said Mary Corley, marketing manager for Purina Mills. “We are excited to help families, wherever they may live, learn the value of raising their own poultry. Whether on the farm, or in town, people like knowing their eggs are fresh and all natural.”
