Attractive, Interesting, Small Coops and Poultry Houses. 

This is a collection of small coops and poultry houses, some that can be built and some that can be purchased. No reason that a coop cannot be attractive as well as functional, be easy to service and comfortable and safe for its occupants. Thanks to those who granted permission to use illustrations of their coops. No blueprints are provided. Imagination and creativity are the basics, as well as use of materials that may be at hand or obtainable by "looking around"!

Houses based on The Penthouse. Designed and manufactured by:

The Domestic Fowl Trust
Honeybourne Pastures
Evesham, Worcs. WR11 5QJ
Tel: (0386) 833083

(yes, that's Jean!)
