Green Envy: The Fanciest Chicken Coop in the World
Anxious to try your hand at backyard chicken raising but afraid there just isn’t enough, oh, glamour involved in a hen-packed coop?
Well Neiman Marcus has you covered with a veritable Taj Mahal for fowls. The Heritage Hen Mini Farm comes with a $100,000 price tag, and is one of the high-luxe items featured in the retailer’s famously opulent 86th edition of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
This “Beau Coop” as Neiman Marcus calls it, features a multi-level roost for your uptown chickens and a chandelier to remind them there’s no place like home. There’s also a library stocked with chicken and gardening books for the chickens’ pet humans to enjoy.
In a benevolent gesture, Neiman Marcus will donate $3,000 of the coop’s purchase price to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, a nonprofit that protects genetic diversity through the conservation and promotion of endangered chicken breeds.
