Chicken Coop...or Should I Say Gallus Domesticus Mansion

When is a chicken coop not a chicken coop?  When it looks like this:

Having grown up with farming, I have never been one of the many folks in Blogland who dream of owning my own chickens and coop...but if it was a Chicken Mansion, even I might have a change of heart.  This Chicken 'Coop' was made by Heather Bullard and her husband and is just the cutest thing I have ever seen.  It is very well thought out and extremely functional.  The nest area is placed in an area to ease in daily egg gathering and all supplies can be stored close at hand and out of sight. 

Her chickens have the cutest would you like to enjoy a fresh egg from Marshmallow, Butter, Lola, Ruby or Souffle? 

Although there are no blueprints or step by step directions, there are some really good tidbits of info and enough photos from differant angles to figure out the basic construction.  You can read her entire post by clicking here

All The Best,
Pin It!

Oh I would LOVE a chicken coop like that on my property! If I could get someone to take care of the chickens, even better.

I do love chickens, but unfortunately so would my DOG.
