re: The Great Wide Open???

I didn't see a date for The Great Wide Open - the trip to take flight off the prow of Minas Tirith.  Will that be run this year?

re: Twelfth Annual Month of the Chicken (2021)

Thank you for telling me, Bavabella.  I did receive Miss Zinnelle's letter.  It is better to be informed twice than not at all. 

I am sorry that it had to be cancelled, but I do understand. Miss Zinnelle and I shall remain in communication.

Thank you again for letting me know.

re: Twelfth Annual Month of the Chicken (2021)

Having a Golden Chicken means you've completed the 6 Flying the Coop quests (Bree, Ered Luin, North Downs, Lone-lands, Evendim, and Trollshaws).  While doing those Flying the Coop Quests your chicken will be white, but once completed your chicken will then become golden.
