    Best of Show, Drew County Fair. We entered the coop in our Drew County Fair along with a trio of Buff Wyandotte Bantams as a demonstration. It was given a blue ribbon. We are planning a coop show for next year!

    The Drew County 4H Poultry Club was blessed with some lumber. Lots of lumber! More than the club members can use. The lumber is 2x5x10. A very unusual size. So we split the boards down the middle and have started building coops. These will be based on my former designs, with the best of all incorporated. Below are photos of some of the coops we have built.

    This 4H Backyard Coop will be 5'W x 8'L x 5'H. It will contain 4 nest with exterior access doors. It will look very similar to the coop pictured above, just larger. It will have an insulated corrugated steel roof. We can add corrugated steel to the baseboard for the cost of the corrugated steel. Otherwise, it will be fencing all around. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Drew County 4H Poultry Club. Delivery is available anywhere for cost of fuel. We are building the first of this size coop this week and will post a photo as soon as we have it completed.

    Our members have all taken what lumber they needed to build their own coops. So they decided that this would be a fun way to do a fundraiser. We will be building some of these for ourselves, but will give priority to anyone wanting to purchase a coop. We can custom build a backyard coop to any size and adjust the price accordingly.

    We can deliver to poultry shows we attend, including Crossroads.

    There are four nest boxes with outside access doors. We have stained this one. The others may be stained for a small extra fee. We can deliver to Crossroads.

    Here is what we have so far.

    We have three of our 4H Backyard coop frames ready to start the finishing touches. These are being built "assembly line" style. We can deliver to Crossroads. For a small fee extra we can even paint them whatever Wal-Mart color you want.

    Yes, we are exhibiting at Crossroads. We can deliver a coop anywhere to or from Indy. As long as it is purchased soon enough to get it completed. We have three frames completed. We just need to put the finishing touches on them.

    Nice fundraiser and project. I did not see any ventilation on most of them...is that not being put in? If not, I would make arrangements for that for sure. Good luck with your project and fundraising!

    Ventilation is in the rear wall top. More vents can be easily added if the buyer feels the need.
