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 . . .
