It's pretty obvious that we love chicken coops.

You've heard the term black sheep of the family? We have a black chicken of the sheep flock. She was at the bottom of her flock's pecking order, so when we started free ranging that group, she literally flew the coop, and she's been doing great ever since. Sometimes you just have to find your own family. :)
