Look! Chicken Coop Around a Tree

These tenacious chicken owners didn't let a tree get in the way of their chicken coop: they built the coop around the tree! Inside, chickens lounge on natural branches and remain connected to the natural environment with a real live tree growing through their living room.

This chicken coop, constructed of salvaged lumber and materials, houses approximately 10 chickens during the night. During they day, they're transported by hand to a larger run but the roosters stay in the coop. Natural skylight and ventilation keep the chickens at ease while chicken wire keeps out the hawks.
