Chicken Coops

As long as I've been walking I've been stepping in chicken poop. I can always expect to have a chicken cross my path in my dad's yard. Dad has been raising chickens since he was just a kid and continues to breed and raise them today. We don't eat the ckickens or their eggs, making them more pet than practical. A few of the special ones got names like Henrietta, Francois and Dufus.


 I never understood the point of them but I think it makes an interesting hobby. Browsing the net the other day I came across something I thought was pretty cool; a modern-style chicken coop. There are several designs out there. Here are a few of the ones that stood out to me. I'm going to try to convince my dad to build one.
