    I'm still researching chickens and coops. I came across this Hencondo which looks perfect for me (well, actually 2 or 3 chickens! [​IMG]). http://www.henspa.focuspage.com/hencondo.htm
    There are no rules in my neighborhood or city about chickens. However, I am renting a house right now until I move next year (in the same area, just to my own home). The neighborhood kids love to run across my yard catching balls, playing tag, etc. I like the stealthiness of this coop. It would allow me to house a couple of chickens, but not attract much attention from the kiddos (it'll fit in my small enclosed garden area at night).

    Any reviews?

    It looks so small! I can't imagine two or three chickens being able to live happily in such a small space. If one chicken gets picked on by the others, she has no place to run or hide.

    I think it looks like a great idea. And since you can move it to a new area each day, they'll have fresh grass underfoot all the time. It might be better for bantams?

    Does anyone know the dimensions? I can't seem to find them on the website.

    I think that it would be fine for very small bantam chickens. I'm not sure about keeping large fowl in there.

    What I prefer is nice looking houses personally. It does look like a nice inconspicuous coop though. Not really big enough for much of a flock. If you want two chickens, that would be pretty nice!

    I think that is too small for even 2-3 chickens.

    What if you were to do 3 bantam ee's or another breed that lays dependably but that also comes in bantam size? How many eggs do you usually go through a week?
