Have $3,500 for a ritzy chicken coop?
You there. Do you have high-maintenance chickens? How about $3,500? Then you’re in luck. For that trifling sum, a three-story chicken coop can be yours. The designer calls it a “luxury condominium for chickens.” Put it next to your platinum-plated garden trellis and your diamond-encrusted watering bucket.
The finished structure includes four nesting rooms, a sliding tray for cleaning, a third-floor roosting area and a solar-powered fan — features for “discriminating poultry,” Mr. Ramsey said.
So if you keep three hens for a year — each laying about five eggs and eating two pounds of organic feed a week — a dozen eggs will only cost you $57!
What a steal.
