For my 100th blog post I must show you the $100,000 Chicken coop that Neiman Marcus has for sale this Christmas. Please, don't all rush out to buy it... THE BEAU COOP
Of course, it's cute, but I can't figure out how they came up with the price tag. See for yourself.
View of your purchase.
So it appears the left screen door is the entry for storage, gathering eggs, and a sitting area. The middle dutch door is the coop, and the right screen door is the chicken run.
A few details from their website:
- The buyer will receive an initial farm consultation and grounds survey and two additional onsite visits from Heritage Hen Farm expert, Svetlana Simon.
- Simon will select three to ten heritage-breed hens carefully selected to suit your region.
- Installation includes two custom-designed and installed raised vegetable or herb garden beds.
- Package includes a multilevel dwelling, nesting area, "living room," broody room, library with books, two Heritage Hen Farm pasture grazing trays, waterer, feeder, and chandelier. All other props and furnishings not included.
- Please allow 6 weeks for delivery.
- Delivery not included
For every Heritage Hen Mini Farm purchase, NM will donate $3,000 to The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that protects genetic diversity through the conservation and promotion of endangered breeds. For details, dial 1-877-9NM-GIFT.
It's a bummer the Heritage Hen Farm website is under construction. The farm is located in Florida interesting enough. Heritage breeds are old and pure strains of standard breeds. They seem to be suffering because of low numbers of both birds and breeds. It's similar to the story of my heirloom tomatoes.
So nothing is included in the purchase from the above picture besides the coop and chandelier. Hopefully, the books are great how-to books for new chicken owners.
Isn't the butterfly cutout cute?! I'm just not sure the girls are going to fit when they are older.

Cute coop huh? So glad to see the retail industry is climbing aboard the urban chicken band wagon.
I also read one of my favorite chicken blogs today that she was hopeful the first lady would add chickens to the white house since she's a gardener. *crossing my fingers the First Lady read it, too.
By the way, Happy birthday to the 'real' Old Lady, my mom.
