Mid-Life Crisis Coop

Isn’t this chicken coop amazing?  It’s a little over the top for me (meaning I would love to have it but not going to put in the time and cost to build it)  but I loved the story behind the little coop as much as I loved the actual chicken coop.

Even if you don’t own chickens, you will enjoy how one man’s mid-life crisis morphed into what you see in the photo.  You can check it out HERE.

I’ll admit it…I have chicken coop envy.  There, I’ve said it.  I love looking at chicken coops and dreaming of the day I build new coops.  I think I’m actually more envious of the cleanliness of the coops.  For instance, the owner/builder of this coop has six chickens.  I have around 50 which explains why hers is so much cleaner.

Here’s to those who also have chicken coop envy…..
