National Chicken Month!

September is National Chicken Month - a time to celebrate farmers and their hard work and dedication to farming and to Canadian consumers for the entire month of September!

This September marks the second annual National Chicken Month in Canada. All month long, Canadians from coast to coast will be celebrating one of their favourite foods – and the hard-working Canadian farmers that produce it.

We are so proud that chicken is Canada’s #1 protein choice! It’s no surprise that Canadians love chicken. Not only is it great for your health – with a great mix of lean protein and healthy fats – it’s delicious, versatile, and easy to include in a large array of recipes.

All month, Canadians from coast to coast will be celebrating this foundation of national health and wellness, with engaging events, free giveaways and more.

Check out what we have in store below!

NATIONAL CHICKEN MONTH RECIPE CONTEST

To mark our 2nd annual National Chicken Month, submit your favourite chicken recipe for a chance to win a Raised by a Canadian Farmer prize pack AND have your recipe featured on our website!

Send your recipe to communications@chicken.ca by September 30th, 2017. Good luck everyone!

FARMER SELFIE CONTEST

We asked chicken farmers from coast to coast to send in selfies of themselves and their families working on the farm. Photos will be posted throughout the month on our twitter page: @theinsidecoop. It’s a great way to get to know your Canadian Chicken farmers – so definitely keep an eye out for our photos

FACEBOOK LIVE VIDEOS

Have you ever wanted to know what the inside of a chicken barn looks like? Or have a conversation with a Canadian chicken farmer to learn about farming? Well here’s your chance! We’ll be doing two Facebook Live Videos this month – one live Q&A with a Canadian farmer about what a day-in-the-life of a Canadian chicken farmer is like and then later in September we’ll be doing a Facebook live barn tour. So keep an eye out for our Facebook live videos this month!

TWITTER PARTY

Get ready to party with Canadian Chicken Farmers! On September 12th at 9 pm EST we will be celebrating chicken month with a twitter party. The party will be all about farming and how our chicken gets from gate to plate. Be sure to join in on the fun – plus there is the added bonus of amazing prizes for some lucky participants!

CHEF D’OEUVRES VIDEOS

Farmers and Swimmers bring on the heat again with this year’s edition of Chef D’Oeuvres. To celebrate our 2nd Annual National Chicken Month, we’ve upped the game by two- teams of two farmers and two swimmers battle it to see who can cook the best chicken recipe.
