The backyard coop seems to be making a comeback and I have to say, it makes me pretty happy. Chickens really aren't that much work once you get the initial setup put together, and who doesn't love fresh eggs? The coop itself doesn't have to be anything fancy, but if you want to have some fun with it, why not? I guarantee any chicken (and owner) would love that cute coop pictured above!
