I love this chicken coop.
It makes me feel all weak in the knees. The weather worn boards, the slanted roof, the mish mash of faded paint on the front. I love this chicken coop. In fact, everything from the split rail fence to the snow covered trees make me a bit woozy. It’s a common condition actually … I am, at this very moment, suffering from what is known in the scientific community as “Snow drunk”.
I might also be actually drunk.
Snow really does make everything outside look better. It’s like beer goggles for derelict buildings and nature.
The coop belongs to Amy from ABCD Design in New York City. The coop’s on the roof of her Manhattan condo. Just kidding. It’s at her country house. I’ve been trying to convince her to fill it with chickens, but so far I haven’t succeeded.
Even though I love my contemporary coop, and it suits its surroundings … I still have a HUGE appreciation for traditional chicken coop designs like this one. Coops that were built way before chickens became the new lap dog.
I also like chicken coops that are shaped like barns, coops with chandeliers in them and coops built out of old cars. I love me a coop.
I also love me pictures of coops. That is where you come in this week. It’s been a while since I called upon you to send in pictures, but … I’m a callin’.
Now is the time for you or your friends to show off their chicken coops.
So if you have a chicken coop, send me a picture of it. Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
(the coop picture post is now closed. sorry, no more entries allowed)
I’ll be picking the cream of the coops and posting them next week. It can be a new picture or an old picture, just so long as it’s YOUR picture.
No prize. No winnings. Just a chance to show off your chickens and coop to other coop owners and those who only dream of a coop. Plus everyone else. So clearly, a huge opportunity for you here.
Have a good weekend.
