    There isn't a limit in the rules for entering...if you have more than 1 coop build story to enter, I say go for it!

    This is my first flock. Picking them up in 4 days! My coop is a prefab from tractor supply so I wont be adding it to the contest. I put it inside a run that I am planning to make bigger next year. I've put so much into the run by myself my hands are sore and badly scratched but I am proud of it. Six lengths of 1x2 wire connected to make the top safe from hawks, more 1x2 wire wrapping the top 2 feet of the run tokeep out climbing raccoons and fisher cats, 1/2 inch hardware cloth wrapping the bottom 4 feet to prevent raccoons from reaching in, more 1×2 inch wire as an apron all round, plus an apron around tbe coop itself which is i side the run in case some critter actually makes it inside the run. Oh, and the run is first made of a 10ftx10ftx6ft chain link dog run. By adding another dog run next year I can increase it ftom 10x10 to 10x30. I'm already thinking of how to alter the prefab to make it bigger and easier. So....maybe next year?

    Sounds like you put a lot of thought and work into it! The coop contests run periodically so keep an eye out for the next one and best of luck with your upcoming flock :thumbsup

    I have one coop that is going to be built soon (I can't wait! :wee), and another one that is already built but I don't have the building process. Can I still enter it if I don't have the build process?
