    If
    your chickens are not spoiled enough, look at this coop! This is obviously for a very certain type of chicken owner and I already have too many for something this small, but it sure shows that even designers are making their way to the chicken world! Can you even imagine? I feel like I'd see this in back of an Eichler--remember those?

    Very Cool! A sculpture for the yard. Although I think it would look great in front of an Eichler.

    Imp- not sure chickens would approve. [​IMG]

    It looks dark inside, and how do you access it to clean, and gather eggs?

    I think it's fantastic - as yard art. For chickens? A big thumbs down.

    It says it's made of cedar - isn't that bad for chickens?
    Fashion before function on that one....

    I thought cedar was bad for chickens? Something about fumes or whatnot?

    That thing looks like someone took a couple of wine barrels and stuck 'em together, [​IMG]

    Not very realistic to use for real, live chickens, in my opinion. Its kinda pretty though.

    Not realistic at all. It may hold one chicken and you can't have just one. And not enough ventilation, no good light, ick. Maybe a conversation piece, but a coop? Nah. Aromatics are not good for chickens, either, so that small, with minimal ventilation won't be good for your bird. Mine would think they were being punished if I shut one in there.

    I don't like it at all.

    BUT, I did find the "Comments" at that website to be entertaining!
