Chicken enthusiasts across the country have the chance to win a heritage flock of chickens from P. Allen Smith’s farm, a free coop from Horizon Structures and a year’s supply of Purina® Layena® Plus Omega feed in the Purina® Rule the Roost Sweepstakes sponsored by Purina and P. Allen Smith with “Chicken Chat” and the Heritage Poultry Conservancy.

Beginning July 18, 2011, contestants can enter to win a grand prize of a Horizon Structures coop to accommodate a heritage flock of 10 hens and two roosters from P. Allen Smith’s farm, and a year’s supply of Purina’s new feed Purina® Layena® Plus Omega, or three first place prizes that include a signed copy of P. Allen Smith’s book, “Seasonal Recipes from the Garden,” and a free bag of Purina® Layena® Plus Omega-3. All entries will receive a $3 off coupon for Purina® Layena® Plus Omega-3. 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. That’s why I feed my flock Purina® Layena® Plus Omega-3. With the Purina® Rule the Roost Sweepstakes, we’re excited to help someone else start raising poultry or give their flock a makeover, so they too, can begin experiencing fresh, healthier eggs.”

Purina’s newest chicken feed, Purina® Layena® Plus Omega-3 helps address the lack of Omega-3 in American’s diets. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid for proper heart and brain function, growth and development. Purina® Layena® Plus Omega-3 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. Like all Purina SunFresh® Recipe Poultry Feeds, Layena® Plus Omega-3 contains marigold extract for rich golden yolks, key levels of calcium and manganese for strong shells with fewer cracks and an optimized level of Vitamin E to support a healthy immune system.

The flock that the Purina® Rule the Roost Sweepstakes winner will receive will consist of Heritage breeds of chickens. For more information on Heritage chickens visit the Heritage Poultry Conservancy’s website, The Heritage Poultry Conservancy, founded by Smith in 2009, is a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and support of all threatened breeds and strains of domestic poultry.
