USDA’s Biosecurity For Bird’s campaign encourages bird owners to take good care of their backyard birds in all seasons. Bird lovers with charming chickens, delightful ducks or any fine feathered friends can show them off in the campaign’s Cutest Bird photo contest.
Backyard poultry owners and other bird enthusiasts are invited to compete for bragging rights by entering their pictures in the photo contest. Submit .jpg or .jpeg photos (4”x 6” at 300 dpi, minimum of 4 MB) at http://healthybirds.aphis.usda.gov in two categories:
1. Cutest chicken or bird
2. Cutest bird couple or family
The contest begins in December 1, 2014 and continues through March 31, 2015. At the end of each month, the winning photo in each category will be selected and then posted on the Biosecurity For Birds website. The winners will be considered for inclusion on the 2016 Biosecurity For Birds Calendar. For an entry form, contest rules and more information visit http://healthybirds.aphis.usda.gov
The Biosecurity For Birds program, begun in 2004, is designed to educate backyard poultry owners and exotic bird enthusiasts about highly contagious poultry diseases and other threats to birds. The program helps inform bird lovers how to prevent disease and tells them what to do if they suspect their birds are infected.
