Let me be the first to say that as a city dweller, I don’t know the first thing about raising or caring for chickens. Although I love that it looks like I have stylish coop options should I ever choose to pursue that. Anyway, as I was saying, I don’t know anything about raising chickens, save for what I might have picked up from Return to Oz, but I’m not putting any stock in that. (I mean, the chicken talks, so.) However, I do know what I think is lovely and delightful, and this sophisticated chicken coop from The Art of Doing Stuff fits the bill.

The details on this thing are amazing, from the practical (doors locked with magnets for security, pulley and eye hook system to open the door to the run) to the stylish (the lanterns, I can’t even). This swank coop may be the first thing to really make me want to own chickens someday. Although as my fellow blogger Rashon pointed out, it does kinda look like it could be a modern day outhouse, so maybe if the chicken-raising thing doesn’t pan out, I can try building one of those instead?
