    Hey everyone, as many of you know we have educational sections on BYC that we are always updating with good information in the form of members pages submitted by members of our community. These pages can be found in the Learning Center and the Coops section. We often start new contests in an effort to collect even more great pages from our community and decided to put together a quick tutorial to explain exactly what we are looking for and how to go about creating these pages. Please reply to this thread with feedback and questions.

    First off, let's look at how to create a member's page. If look at the brown header at the top of your screen, for "Articles"

    Now click on the "Articles" tab, then look for Create Article:

    You will be asked to select a category for your article. For Coop pages, select Coops, for recipes, select Recipes, for member pages, select Member Page. (These options may be different for you guys - I'm in Admin view)

    After selecting the category, proceed to the template where you can create your page. Choose a catchy title for your page, fill the "contents" section with whatever text and images you choose and here is where it gets interesting! Scroll down and check this out:

    Mega cute. Your chooks are going to be pretty high class. It'll keep them nice and cosy at night. My girls simply love their coop also. I'll have to take some more photos and post them online.

    I built a pallet chicken coop with pallets and spare lumbar. Whole thing cost me $30.

    A little coop/hut I built some time ago and dubbed Chante Cathedral because of it's shape. I used this as a grow out pen for 6 buff Chantecler I bought from Staceykins

    There is a small loft up above and I made a ladder for them to get up when they were real young.
    Later when they were bigger I added another perch under it so they could roost up and not be so
    tightly together, for warmer months.
    It has served me well as a grow out pen to keep babies from being picked on and yet let chickens get acquainted before being merged.
    Where there's a woman, there's a way!!
