The cool thing about raising chickens and letting them roam around in the backyard is that you get a nearly unlimited amount of free fresh eggs every morning for breakfast, an insect and pest-free extra fertilized garden as they forage about, and a unique pet that you will never be able to catch. So if you're not on a farm, but want to raise them in the backyard of your home, then check out this cool new Cedar Chicken Coop and Run with Garden Planter.
This roomy, yet compact backyard chicken coop is hand-built in the USA from sustainably harvested western red cedar and can easily accommodate 4 hens or up to 6 if you let them roam freely during the day. It features a watertight interior, two removable nest boxes, an easy to reach back door egg collection hatch, a 25 square foot mesh-enclosed run, a galvanized-metal roof, and more, including a little garden planter on the side. It's definitely a cool trend to raise chickens, they're like pets that actually have a job, but you'd better check with your neighbors or crazed HOA first.
