I lust for chicken house

I was exiting the garden center in St. Helena recently and saw this. Be still my heart. I want. Beautiful, no? I have a new appreciation for the time, effort and cost of materials, because the next thing I saw was the sign in the window. Three grand, baby. I don't know the builder. Probably never will since I live just slightly within city limits, I'm concerned my neighbors would be offended and there is no way I can afford this chicken house. It's a handsome chicken house but what do you all think of the wire floor? Is that OK for chicken feet? I'm not that familiar with chicken culture so I have no idea.

Hi Carolyn
Have enjoyed reading your blog page Mud Fence Garden.And this Chicken house is great but I agree that is a bit much for Chickens.
You have a great yard "garden". Some beautiful roses I don't think I have seen before. Keep it up enjoy your humor very much.

I love that chicken house! I think I could get my 'Equipment Manager' to build one for a lot less and as for the wire floor, the poop drops through and you could put hay in the nesting corner for comfort. I did grow up on a turkey farm and the runs were wire so I think it will be okay on the chicken feet!
