Old Chicken Coop

Love, love this old chicken coop.  It hasn't seen a chicken in years - 






I love searching old farmsteads and outbuildings (I always have permission).  You can see all the great ideas this old farm wife had; from the latch and drop front for gathering eggs, inexpensive roosting perch to the brackets above the windows.  I wish this one were on my property!

If this were higher, it would be the penthouse coop. Luxurious! Love it. I'm glad you found it and I'm also glad you shared. Thanks for linking up!

What a great coop and fantastic photos, I'd love something like that too!

Great photos, those chickens would have had a pretty flash home in their day.

that is certainly an old place

Many a chicken has enjoyed that as their home. I saw those around a lot growing up. I think they still use them in certain states.

What an interesting building!! I have never seen the inside of a chicken coop, but this one was built with care and attention to detail!! I especially love the windows!!

I bet there were a lot of eggs gathered in that chicken house. Neat old place.

Great find. It looks very clean, if you get my drift. :) Thanks for sharing it with us!
