7 Beautiful Chicken Coops to Brighten Your Backyard

Posted by Gabrielle Blair on July 27, 2012 at 4:00 PM

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!

I've put together 6 more anything-but-ordinary coops below. Click through for a little egg-happy inspiration!

This moody coop is in no way run-of-the-mill! I especially like that it's completely self-contained. And the paver stones add a nice touch, don't you think?

You can find the whole breakdown on this cute coop here!  

Wow, this coop was made from the ruins of an old shed. What a fabulous and functional transformation! 

Looks like this cool coop was made to be mobile, that's a pretty smart idea!

Oh, this one might be my favorite! What a lovely little house for the hens to roost in! 

Happy chickens lay lots of eggs, or so I'm told. This bright coop seems like it would do the trick! Find out all the details here

How do you feel about backyard coops? Ready to make the leap -- or no thanks?

Some are cute but I don't want a chicken coop in my back yard.

I would have loved one of these when our hens were in our backyard! Now they have their own spot on the acreage we bought.

We would love to have chickens. Isn't going to happen while we live in military housing. Maybe someday.

Would love to have one but hubby refuses to help take care of a coop so it looks like we won't get one...ever..
