Green Roof Chicken Coops was an idea that two high school best friends had after getting fed up with the way commercial eggs are harvested. If any of you have ever been to a commercial egg farm or poultry slaughterhouse, you'll know exactly what we're referring to.
After doing a little research, we realized how fun and easy it is to raise chickens. The problem we ran into was that most of the chicken coops looked exactly the same - and, frankly, neither of us was all that excited about putting a traditional-looking chicken coop in our yards.
So, we reached out to a local architect Tim Phillips and presented him a challenge. We asked for a contemporary looking chicken coop with exceptional ease of use, security and functionality. We also asked him to think about incorporating a "green" roof for us. Eating fresh eggs is amazing, but we also wanted to take advantage of our new, cute fertilizer makers.
As you'll see from our site, Tim really delivered. In our opinion, the Green Roof Chicken Coop is not only more attractive than everything else on the market, but it's also more functional. And, we love being able to plant vegetables and flowers in the roof.
The funny thing is that neither of us ever thought selling chicken coops, kits and plans was a real business. All we wanted was a cool chicken coop in each of our backyards. It was our friends and neighbors that convinced us to try to share this design on the Internet. They all loved it so much, that we decided to give it a shot!
I should also mention... our kids LOVE the chickens. Honestly, we didn't go into the project thinking we'd end us with new backyard pets, but that's exactly what happened.
We are a family owned and operated business. We are based in the USA, and we do everything we can to support raw materials and components coming from within our borders.
Good luck with your coop, and thanks for visiting our site!
