Modern chicken coop

Even though chickens make a very benefic pet, not a lot of people would consider having them. Here’s something that might make you change your mind. It’s called The Nogg and it was designed by furniture designer and engineer Matthew Hayward and Creative Director Nadia Turan.

It’s shaped like an egg and it was design to house 2 to 4 chickens. It is also appropriate for both rural and urban environment. It’s a nice way of encouraging domestic farming by adding an elegant and modern touch to the basic chicken coop. When you see it, it makes you think: which one was first? The chicken or the egg?

This fun structure was designed engineered and handcrafted in the UK using strong cedar wood and stainless steel for the doors. This makes it both resistant and aesthetically pleasant, as well as safe for the chickens.

The nnovative glass top twists and lifts to add ventilation and it is just one of the details that make the Nogg such and interesting structure with a contemporary artistic touch. And it is also easy to clean because of the removable base tray inside.Make your chickens happy. Who knows, maybe they’ll give you more eggs.

    It is very cute but Cedar can cause respiratory problems for chickens. The cute size is a severe draw back if happy hens are desired. The normal recommendation of 4 square feet per hen would require separate coups for each chicken. Since they are very social and do better in a group of 3 that would not work. Maybe if it is redesigned to hold the feed and provide a source of water it would be as useful as it is cute.

    This “coop” was not designed by someone who’s actually raised chickens.

    Where’s the outside access to the nesting boxes for the owner to collect the eggs without bothering/stirring up the chickens?

  • cliff says:

    if it’s attached to, or inside a coop, this is a cute little henhouse. but I’m against totally free-range birds in the city or burbs. they’ll destroy the lawn and some shrubs.

    Are there roosts inside for the chickens at night? Nest boxes for laying?
