Colorful and Recycled Coop
Erica Jong and Josh Crook of Atlanta crafted this coop from recycled wood flooring that had been in their kitchen. The coop is built 2 feet off the ground to give their girls some shade during the warm Atlanta summers.
Neiman Marcus Chicken Coop
The Heritage Hen Mini Farm comes with a $100,000 price tag and is one of the high-luxe items featured in the 86th edition of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
This large coop in East Atlanta is attached to a playhouse and is home to seven chickens.
Williams-Sonoma Chicken Coop
The Dan Cohen-designed Alexandria Coop is part of the Williams-Sonoma Agrarian line of garden and homestead products.
Hawks and racoons will prey on chickens even in the city. So, urban coops must be completely "critter proof." This co-op built coop in Decatur, Ga., is styled as a country barn and features a feed area that is completely enclosed with screen, including the floor.
A Wylde Coop
The coop at the Wylde Center, a community garden and learning center in Decatur, Ga., was built by volunteers -- mostly parents of young children who wanted to help their kids connect with the natural world. The center's "girls" are cared for by Team Chicken -- 10 families who divide up the effort and cost.
Coops Can Be Fun
Erica Jong and Josh Crook designed their cheery coop to fit in with the kid-friendly theme of their backyard, say their chickens are very social and run to them to be held or just "chat."
