    ok so it's not a real contest, but everyone on here has such fancy and pretty coops. Let's see some of those good ol' ugly ones. The ones just get the job done, with out all the bells and whistles. Even if it was just a temp coop.

    Submit your ugly coop picture below!

    Actually, this beats mine!! I'll upload pix when I figure it out.

    My dad used an old satellite dish (those large ones) for the roof of his and built his in a silo form....very rustic...would definately "win" this...I'll take photos of our a"uglies"...

    You know, Newchickmom, that is not bad at all.

    All it needs is a fresh coat of solid color opaque deck stain in a pretty color. Maybe a complimentary color for the door. It is actually very nice! Just needs some rouge and lipstick.

    That's got me thinkin' ...
    I like the idea of round pen, that way no one gets
    stuck in the corners if scared, etc.

    OK, I'm gonna win this one hands-down! I'll post some pics shortly.
    By the way, I have lots of round pens of my turkeys, and you know what happens? They pace a lot because they never run into a corner. they just keep circling. Weird.
