We've talked about chicken coops in the past with great abundance—and for good reason! We love that homeowners are trying to raise the animals where zoning allows and not just reserving the act for those who live on farms. But this new coop especially caught our attention for its egg-shaped modern looks. Can chickens say Na-Nu Na-Nu?

This coop appears to be the perfect size for someone wanting a few chickens and not the entire flock. It holds 2-4 birds comfortably and is made from naturally antibacterial cedar. There is even a removable and height adjustable roof that allows in fresh air during warmer months.

The idea of a chicken living inside something that resembles the thing it actually creates is a little bizarre (like a human living inside a giant baby doll of sorts), but at least it's pleasing to the eye, a little cooler than a traditional coop, and feels a bit more sculptural.

The coop was produced by Nogg and has a removable bottom tray, making it easy to clean. Hidden below are a set of wheels that make the coop portable. It can either be moved across your lawn to keep all your grass growing green or moved closer to a hose when it comes time to clean things out.

You can check out more over at Nogg, but all in all we're in love with the design and would like one or two... or three or four of them on our own land! What do you think about the idea? Let us know below!
