I have to show you our really modern and cool chicken coop that my husband designed. He did such a great job. It has a little running area for the chickens to be outdoors, but still protected. The enclosed area has 3 little nesting boxes for our ladies and a shelf above the boxes for the chickens to perch. It all has a clear acrylic roof on top of it so when the chickens jump up on the shelf they can actually see outside. We call it the penthouse. It was an entire family endeavor to make and paint it. We had to give it a modern twist with the blocks of color. What fun. I think our little ladies are living large!
