Renee Woods of Colo., won the first and final round of Purina’s Fresh Eggs of the Year competition, the company’s first ever nation-wide egg contest held during their Flock-Tober celebration.
Renee and her flock of multiple chicken breeds won the first round in the competition and earned the title of “Most Colorful Farm Fresh Eggs”, earlier in Oct., with her photo entry showing off eleven of her bird’s most colorful eggs. Her entry also stated that many of the eggs her chickens produce are contributed to the homeless in Denver, Colo.
In the final round, Renee competed with the other winners of the last two rounds for the title and a year’s supply of chicken feed (14 bags). More than 600 people voted and Renee received nearly half of those total votes on Purina Poultry’s Facebook page. She intends to use the feed for her various types of hens to produce more colorful eggs to donate to the homeless in her community. She also plans to add more chickens to her backyard flock.
She also uploaded a video telling her birds that they won which can be viewed on Purina Poultry’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/PurinaPoultry/videos/1520287491370943/
