Urban chickens have an elegant new housing option thanks to this awesome solar-powered coop we came across this week at ICFF . RAAD studio  from New York City has taken a departure from its usual style to create a thoughtful product that amateur urban farmers  will love. Shipped flat packed and easily assembled in one afternoon, the luxury chicken coop  has every feature a chicken needs to roost happily and lay delicious urban farm-fresh eggs.
Solar energy  is used to circulate air through the coop, which also features storage space for bedding and food, a comfortable perch for roosting, four private laying units that are easily accessible, and a slide out chicken run that facilitates easy cleaning. A rising number of city dwellers  are choosing to raise their own chickens; RAAD has capitalized on this with a product that ensures maximum comfort for both the birds and the people with minimum fuss.
