During the past two months, 1840 Farm has been proud to participate in the Purina 60 Day See the Difference Challenge. I was given the incredible opportunity to share my experience with the readers of the Mother Earth News and Grit Magazine Community Chickens forum. In fact, I just published the final post regarding the challenge to the forum this morning:

I learned a lot during the See the Difference Challenge. We happily solved our dilemma of how to supplement our chicken’s calcium intake without the use of oyster shell which might trigger my son’s shellfish allergy. By feeding our heritage breed hens the Purina Layena Sunfresh feed, we enjoyed sixty days of egg collecting without finding even one broken shell.
While improving the strength of the eggs produced in our coop was reward enough, Purina also provided me with a FLIP camera to help document our participation in the Challenge. I was surprised by how easy the camera was to use and find myself using it on a regular basis here on our farm. In fact, I have posted many videos of our hens and our baby goat kids on FaceBook and Twitter for readers to enjoy.
Here’s the best news for you, Dear Reader. Purina also provided me with a FLIP camera to give away to one lucky reader. I will randomly select a reader on Monday, November 21, 2011. The winner will be notified via Email and announced to all of my readers via FaceBook, Twitter, the Community Chickens forum, and on this blog.
If you would like to enter the drawing, simply comment on this post below. Be sure to include your Email address so that I can contact you if you are chosen as the lucky winner.
Good luck to all who enter and thank you Purina for allowing us to participate in the 60 Day See the Difference Challenge!
