I was at a county fair and took some photos of another portable coop that looked so simple I could even make it. It was small but.... there are a lot of people who really don't have the space for more than 3 birds let alone a need for more than a carton of eggs a week. I wish I could remember where I posted that photo of the coop or.... if I even did.

But! You could add chandeliers and mirrors! And a fancy door. And a swimming pool!

Sage> no chandeliers for my chicken coop until I get 1 for my house and definitely no swimming pool until we get 1 for us and that won’t happen anytime soon because there’s no place we could add 1 and well…. we’d have to shell out big $$$ for a pool and I’m not into 2nd mortgages!!! I guess my chickens are going to have to “rough” it!!!

I sent your chicken coop pictures to a friend who is a builder. I'm interested to see what he says like how much it will cost.
