You can visit the campaign site to learn more about the day and see how you can download cow spots and masks and other cow essentials.  And if you really love chicken, one lucky adult and one lucky kid who is dressed as the best cow will win free chicken for a year.  This year there is also a nice Facebook page too.

This is a great example of how a brand builds on its everyday tagline and mission (to get people to eat more chicken) in a fun and buzz-worthy way.  And also provides an easy way for people to participate on the fun, with easy to apply cow spots on the website giving everyone a simple way to participate.
