The sis wants chickens. I want fresh eggs. I think a lovely relationship can be cultivated. We just need to figure out a home for her hens. Here’s a little round-up of the modern-day chicken coop. (Who knew there were so many — we must be on to something here!)
I like this very simple, shed-like coop. See this photo and more at the blog of Debra Prinzing
For the single bird and smaller space, this Chicken Crib could be just right.
Also somewhat strange looking – but seemingly practical is Omlet’s Egu.
The Nogg is designed by furniture designer and engineer Matthew Hayward and Creative Director Nadia Turan. Terribly clever – and lovely.
This one is another modern favorite. Designed by Frederik Roije.
And I am of course a fan of just about anything Dwell highlights. Read the story about this modern coop/planter right here.
