Design a Chicken Coop, Help Orphans in Uganda
Wish We Had Acres' Phoenix chicken house, featured on the Tour de Coops.
All over town, folks are doing the chicken dance. Last weekend's Tour de Coops proved that -- check out our slideshow if you missed it.
Now you have a chance to show off your design skills in the Poultry Project's Chicken Coop Design Competition. This is a challenging one, folks: You are being asked to design a community chicken coop for use in rural Uganda.
But before you dismiss it as too much work, this is for a good cause. The Poultry Project, a U.S.-based non-profit, aims to give HIV/AIDS-affected orphans a chance to become poultry farmers. Cool, huh?

Get all the details here. Better hurry, the deadline is December 31, 2011.
