To do this, we are contacting mayors across Canada and asking them to promote National Chicken Month in their city as a way to show their appreciation to chicken farmers and all they do for us and Canada! All you have to do is tweet at your mayor and encourage them to tweet about National Chicken Month, i.e. by using the hashtag #IHeartChickenFarmers or by posting a photo of the recipe they are using to celebrate Chicken Month, or tweet about why they love Chicken in general, etc!
