Designer Chicken Coops

How cool is this? A designer chicken coop for all those budding inner city chicken owners out there.

Engineered and crafted by hand in the UK, the Nogg is made from strong cedar wood which is fresh scented and naturally antibacterial and is designed to house two to four chickens. It is the brainchild of furniture designer and engineer Matthew Hayward and Creative Director Nadia Turan.

They say: "The nogg is designed to enhance and compliment its surroundings and fit sculpturally with this aesthetic assumption. The nogg aids and advocates the provenance of homegrown foods. Chicken keeping has become a huge trend in the last 18 months and makes an ideal pet with benefits that delivers fresh eggs in the morning.

"It is a great example of how a random thought became a reality when a number of friends and relatives were excited about keeping chickens. It was upsetting to all of us how ugly, badly constructed and rudimentary the chicken coops were. It sparked a debate as to why we should be lumbered with an eyesore in our gardens."

Thank goodness for random thoughts!


  1. Oh my gosh, that is so cute. We just moved back to our house downtown over the last few weeks and my neighbor has a few chickens in her yard. I must show her this!!

  2. It is very stylish, isn't it?

  3. Swish! And it even looks like an egg!

  4. Oh My! Now I really have seen it all! I would love some chooks, but it would be chicken wire for me. The old school hen houses have so much charm!
