All Cooped Up



You tell me what chickens wouldn’t be happy to be “cooped up” in this great house?  I wouldn’t mind living there myself.  A lot of people are starting to keep chickens now and there are plenty of coop designs to choose from.  I found this one at The Art of Doing Stuff.  Karen at The Art of Doing Stuff built the above coop with no plans to speak of.  Now there are plans out there.  One site that sells them is Chez Poulet.  Here is a picture of the coop.  Is it coopalicious?  Not a word I know.

Would you build your own coop?  Would you do it without plans like Karen only to find some really great ones online a year later?  I’ve got to admit she has determination. Here is a story about two sisters who bought 40 chicks with no coop.  After keeping the chicks in the garage they decided to build a coop of their own because buying one was so expensive.

Tell me.  Would you like to have your own chicks?  Would you have to live in the country or would you build this or any of these other coops in your backyard and go for it?  Fresh eggs . . .

I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk) and now some new and fun work on the firm's website. We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse-themed and it is a very beautiful area to live in and raise a family. I have many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, computer science and security and one of my greatest passions is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family and reading and writing about my interests in my blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
