A Sexy Chicken Coop?

Alexa Hotz November 05, 2012

We knew it was only a matter of time before a polished, considered chicken coop was designed. This week, we spotted the Moop (modular coop) prototype on You Are The River, and it’s become our new favorite.

Made by Nottoscale, the Moop is described by the designers as “a prefabricated modular chicken coop for the design minded urban chicken.” Whether it’s the chicken or the owner who is the aesthete, we appreciate the compact shape, use of natural and white-painted plywood, and simple screens. The coop is spacious enough for four hens while maintaining a small footprint with two separate 4- by 2-foot sized chicken runs. The designers are currently setting up the manufacturing process; stay informed via Nottoscale.
