Purina launches poultry campaign on facebook

Chicken enthusiasts across the US have the chance to win a heritage flock of chickens from P. Allen Smith's farm, a free Horizon Structures coop and a year's supply of Purina Layena Plus Omega feed in a facebook campaign named the Purina Rule the Roost Sweepstakes.

Beginning July 18, 2011, contestants can enter the Purina Rule the Roost Sweepstakes by visiting and by "liking" Purina Poultry and Chicken Chat on Facebook and filling out an entry form.

"Chickens, especially the heritage breeds, are a huge passion for me and also a great source of fresh food," said P. Allen Smith, food and gardening expert and founder of the Heritage Poultry Conservancy. "What they eat is important not only for their health but also for the eggs they produce. With the Purina Rule the Roost Sweepstakes, we're excited to help someone else start raising poultry or give their flock a makeover."

Purina's newest chicken feed, Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 helps address the lack of Omega-3 in American's diets. It is formulated to produce more than 200mg Omega-3 per large egg and has a natural vegetarian formula with added vitamins, minerals, and trace nutrients and without added antibiotics or hormones.

The Purina Rule the Roost Sweepstakes ends September 18, 2011, and prizes will be awarded by September 30, 2011.
