Neiman Marcus is ringing in the holidays for the 1% with the launch of their 2012 Fantasy Gift Christmas Book – and this year’s edition features a super posh chicken coop for heirloom hens that rings in at a whopping $100k. The Heritage Hen Mini Farm is a two-story luxury abode for egg-laying hens designed by Svetlana Simon of Heritage Hen Farm in Florida. The Versailles-inspired Le Petit Trianon house is way over the top for raising chickens – it comes with a chandelier for starters, and the hefty purchase price includes a selection of heritage-breed hens, and a whole lot of hand-holding to help start your new farm.

    One wonders how many free-range “ghetto chickens”, and their resulting eggs, could be raised in, for example, Detroit, with 100 Grand, and ordinary (and much cheaper) Farm Store or Co-Op bred chicks, along with voluntary animal husbandry training for ghetto gang members. The Chinese Proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” comes to mind.

    This is a mindless waste of money- a rich boy or girl’s toy. I converted my children’s cubby house into a two storey hen house with fox proof mesh that cost me a couple of hundred dollars. Are my chickens any less happy for the lack of a chandelier or framed paintings on the wall?

    On second thought, rather than spend 100 grand on such an item, would it not be better to use that money to feed hungry children in America? Perhaps serious consideration should be given to gifting that same sum of money to the people who work so hard to bring us these wonderful pages of “Inhabitat!”

    Perfect, this is great! I have found a gift for my cat this year. He is going to love this. How do I wrap it?

    This angers me in ways that I cannot fully articulate. The worst of it is, not having access to the pretentious creeps who either design or buy these travesties, now I want to go punch a chicken.
