i’m intrigued by the idea of backyard chickens, but i don’t use eggs or meat in my kitchen. plus my wanna-be-bird-hunting dog would torment them! more than the fantasy of having chickens though, i think i’m actually more obsessed with which fantasy coop design would be the best fit in my garden.
elisabeth bentz recently moved herself and her menagerie, including the chickens and their coop, from portland to ashland, oregon.
i love the simplicity of the coop design above, and the mini green eco-roof!

henspa.com has some great simple, modern coop designs.
the mother of coop design porn is backyardchickens.com.
some designs here are amazing, others not so much! but it's great to see a ton of different design ideas all at once.
in portland, my favorite place to get supplies for my fantasy chickens would be pistils nursery. they have a coop and chickens onsite and offer lots of info., classes and custom coop design. and also worm composting and beautiful custom worm composters. and beekeeping. and, you know, plants and such. there's lots of excuses to visit this place!
