Spotted in the English countryside: just about the smartest little chicken house a flock could ever want. (Sorry for the fence in the foreground; there was no getting around that.)
On the left, a nice wooden coop with nesting boxes sticking out the side, making it easy to collect eggs from the outside. Windows that can be shuttered up on the coldest winter nights. A nice big run, screened on top, with board along the base to keep predators out and chickens in. And if you were very smart, you’d make the entire run detachable so you could rotate it around and attach it to another side of the coop next year, giving the girls some fresh grass to go to work on.
