    I've been looking over the coop submissions for a year now to get ideas for our perfect walk-in coop, which we haven't built yet.
    When I look at the details of someone's pictures, I think 'Is this one suited for my climate?", and I look at the surrounding trees,
    terrain & sky to guess where they live.
    Does anyone else think it would be a good idea to have the submitters list their state? I think it would make it easier to get ideas.

    Yup, it would definitely be helpful for each member to state where they live or at least the climate!

    I think that would be an excellent idea! That way folks can get a better idea of who can tolerate/benefit from an open air type coop, and who needs a more solid housing...

    I third that idea! Or fourth... or fifth, which ever number post I am! Err made. Whatever. GREAT IDEA.

    I agree. Having the state listed would help tremendously. You don't have to list your city, just your state. Would be a great help when looking to see if someones ideas would work for you.

    I dont see any harm in listing ones state, even if they do ya still have to take yer own climate conditions into consideration. [​IMG]
    We took an idea off BYC that was submitted from a member in a much warmer climate than ours. It used part of a shed row for the horses.
    We tweaked it to work for our colder climate and will probably tweak it some more before its peeeerfect-o [​IMG]

    Theres sure alot of creative folks on BYC. I enjoy browsin' around the yard. [​IMG]

    As a newbi, the more information one can post on their coop, climate, predetors, state/province would be extremely helpfull and a whole lot more interesting for all.
