Author and farmer Judy Pangman combed the country to select these 45 plans for housing both laying hens and meat birds (chickens or turkeys). The coops range from fashionable backyard structures featured in the annual Seattle Tilth City Chickens Tour and the Mad City Chickens Tour in Madison, Wisconsin, to the large-scale, moveable structures Joel Salatin has fashioned for Polyface Farm in Virginia.

By Page Smith, Charles Daniel
“At times amusing, essentially very serious, this engaging offbeat look at the chicken—as an estimable creature in itself and as a symbol of man’s desensitization through technology—[is] a pro-chicken, pro-man Western omelette worth reading and pondering.”–Publishers Weekly
