    OMG!! If you could ensure quiet hens this coop would never get noticed.

    Course if you have super nosy neighbors they might wonder why you're always hanging around the trash. [​IMG]

    I saw that on an add here. I thought it looked great, but am a little skeptical about a snap on lid that keeps out predators. Racoons in an urban environment know trash cans are where the good stuff is at.

    I do like the way the run looks like a compost bin. It would not look odd to throw your kitchen scraps in there.

    Rats would chew right through that lid. Need to be metal. And cheaper. WAY cheaper. The idea is interesting, but geez, Suede wouldn't fit in there by himself and be able to turn around. Maybe 2 banties.

    I saw that! It made me laugh, but it is pretty smart (if you're keeping illegal birds).

    Yeah the price tag made me go. [​IMG]

    It got me thinking though, what other ordinary things could you disguise a coop as?
