    We've had a Chicken POW for years and years, and with our cool new BYC homepage we thought we should start a chicken coop POW too!

    The process will be similar to the Submit Your Chicken Page For The Picture Of The Week (POW) process:

    Every week we'll be choosing from our member's "Chicken Coops" pages to be featured as a The Chicken Coop Picture Of The Week (CC-POW?) on the homepage of the site.

    You can create your own chicken coop pages here: Coop Designs

    Similar to our Coop Page Contests, we'll be looking for pages with great pictures and information, for example:

    1) A write up of how you built your coop along with any information you think would be helpful to other people who may want to build a similar coop.
    2) Any designs / plans you used to build your coop.
    3) Pictures of your coop as it was being constructed.
    4) Finished pictures of your coop.
    5) What you want to change / add to your completed coop.

    All of those items aren't required, but the more the better!

    We'll choose a picture from some of the pages and feature it as the CC-POW and then comment on your Cooop Page with a note that it has been featured with a link back to this thread (since everyone always wants to know how to get their coop as a CC-POW).

    We look forward to seeing your submissions!


    Here is the note posted in the comments section of each page that had a POW chosen:

    (note: If you're looking for information on how to submit your coop to be included in our coop index please visit out Coop & Run - Design, Construction, & Maintenance section and look for the current chicken coop page contest linked at the top of the page)

    Here is a list of the most recent Chicken Coop Pictures Of The Week:

    Question, can a newby like myself participate? Also, I don't really have any "construction" pictures per se as both of my coops are (1) a refurbished dog house and (2) a refurbished shed, however, I do have before and after pics, can I still post them? Thanks!

    I need a way to search through previous CC-POW. I saw one last week that I want to share and I can't find it.

    There are some stale links in the informational post at the top of this thread. You might want to consider updating them.

    "Coop Designs"
    "chicken coops"

    I didn't click on all of them, so there may be more.
