    My friend Kino Kopelov, of Kopelov Cut Stone in Bernarillo, New Mexico, just built this limestone coop for his little flock.

    These photos were taken while Kino and his father Labe were building the coop. They cut all the stone in their shop, and Kino did all the carving.

    Wow! I mean that with great conviction and admiration.
    Because a half hearted 'wow' is unintended.

    It is art that houses chickens.

    WOW, that's incredible!!!

    Hopefully Kino will join us here at BYC and create a coop page that we can feature in our coop design section!!!

    If not, maybe Gargoyle, he can supply you with the text and images that we can use to create a page for him?

    Exquisite. What a whimsical and yet totally charming little building! Puts me in mind of the Frank Lloyd Wright quote that someone has in their siggy: "Regard it just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral."
