Golden Laced Wyandottes

Photo Contest Winner

Congratulations to Tracy Anderson our first place winner in the contest with her photo of Tubsy, a beautiful Golden Laced Wyandotte from Murray McMurray Hatchery.

Tracy began raising chickens from Murray McMurray back in the 1970s. She recalls that as a young girl, her parents would receive a phone call from the post office: “your box is peeping.” Tracy now lives on a small farm and raises horses, donkeys, chickens, and a Scottish Highlander. Tracy received a $100 coupon for winning first place, and she plans to use the coupon to add to her flock.
