Raising chickens [1] in one’s backyard is a growing trend that has given away to some awesome chicken coop [2] designs. But just when we thought we’d seen them all [3], enter the Front Yard “Full Monty” Coop [4] – an amazing structure that not only uses solar [5] panels, but contains a self-propelling mechanism that moves the coop 16 feet every hour, promoting the movement of your birds. Measuring 4′ wide x 8′ long, the coop comfortably holds up to six standard sized birds, and also maintains self-dispensing containers that can hold food and water for days. And if you’re worried about the coop hitting a dead end, fret not. If it bumps into something, it automatically turns itself around and moves in another direction!
