    OMG.........they fenced in a garbage can and want to sell it for $500 [​IMG]
  4. I can't believe these people made a business decision to create and advertise a product that is intended to break a law. [​IMG]

    This is an intentional attempt to deceive - not good if you have to go up against your local anti-chicken bylaws. If someone buys this thing, and used it in a situation where chickens are forbidden, and they get caught, and someone brings this website to the attention of the local authorities – trust me, that chicken owner has no chance of prevailing.

    I don't think this really helps people who want to own chickens but can't in these situations.

    Plus - I agree 100% with English Chick - it looks like a jail (or a compost bin.)

    They wouldn't have made it if there weren't a market for it.

    It is so small! I look at that and say, "THREE hens?" "Where?" It reminds me of a roaster, or a smoker. My husbands smokehouse is about that size.

    My chickens are illegal too. However, I would think getting caught with them in something that looks like a trashcan would get me in more trouble than keeping them the way I am doing.
  7. Quote:Actually - if I sounded like was also criticizing people who have chickens illegally I didn’t mean to so I apologize if came off that way! That's a personal decision as far I'm concerned.

    What I find really interesting though is that these folks made this type of business decision.

    The price amazed me too. 500$ how do they justify this I am pretty sure there is no more than 40-50$ inmaterial. even the eggloo looks better. cant imagine somebody shelling that much money out for something that ugly.

    Would make a good quarantine coop, or breeding coop for a trio of bantums, I suppose....

    Not for 500 bucks though... might pay $150 if I didn't know any better.

    For $500 I'd much rather have an eglu!

    Heck, for $500 you can get an 8x10 'in stock' DIY wooden storage building, and keep 3 chickens cooped in there 24x7 and they'd have a lot more room to move around and no body would ever know you had chickens...

    Pretty cool idea. I give them props for it
    It looks pretty small for even one chicken, though.
    And $500? I dont think so.
    But all in all, its innovative and well thought out from an engineering perspective. I predict it will do well.
