From basil to chickens, urban farmers are transforming the urban landscape. Although many urban agriculture solutions come at a price more akin to a trip to the farmer's market, this urban home for city fowl has a $3,500 price tag.
The Chicken Co-op, designed by James Ramsey of RAAD Studio in Manhattan, boasts efficient use of materials, quick and easy installation and solar-powered fans to keep your cluckers cool.
The Chicken Co-op is definitely an exercise in excess, but Mr. Ramsey seems to be in on the joke.
“It’s a Modernist, high-end chicken coop,” Mr. Ramsey said. “It’s like the condo craze of two years ago, except you’re building this luxury condominium for chickens.”
We've reported on chicken coops great for spacious living but do any of you fellow urbanites have your own, maybe more affordable, DIY designs for urban chicks?
