Question: if you hear a truck drive up to your house and the doorbell rings, what goes through your mind if your husband says, “Oh, it’s finally here!”?
If you’re my friend, Rayna, your list of possibilities does not include a chicken coop. But a month or so ago, that’s exactly what arrived at her house. See Rayna’s husband wants to start eating fresh eggs. And Rayna can get on board with that, really she can. What she’s having a bit more trouble with is the current chicken coop’s lack of, er…charm.
Even though she probably is not going to upgrade any time soon, Rayna’s predicament got me thinking about what kind of fancy chicken coops exist out there. In the age of Houzz and Pinterest I knew I could find some good ones. Here are some of the best — which one would you choose for yourself?
This cottage-style coop created by Heather Bullard?
This egg shaped chicken coop by Nogg?
The space efficient — and eco-friendly — Omlet Eglu Classic?
This clean-lined coop made by Karen from The Art of Doing Stuff (PS — it has a skylight)
Or this modern cube by Mitchell Snyder Architecture?
After seeing the plethora of chicken coops out there, I wouldn’t be surprised if HGTV puts on a new design show about them. Just think of how many bad puns they could come up with for the name of such a show…Feathering Your Nest…Chic(K) Coops…Home to Roost…
