The city of Sioux Falls, SD is working on an ordinance to allow chickens, rabbits, goats, etc to be kept in the backyard. I wonder if they wold allow this redneck chicken coop?

If the chicken coupe/coop is in the garden, does that make this late 1960s(?) VW shell a "GARDEN BUG"? As long as were having a little pun/fun here. RN

While the chicken coop is totally new age hippy (owner probably conceived in the back seat of the Bug) look at the house it is sitting behind (hopefully its not the front yard). Nothing cheap about it.

If you want to be serious about looking up urban agriculture, check out Growing Power in Milwaukee, WI. Will Allen takes abandoned city lots and produces very effective urban "farms" complete with fish, poultry, and sometimes goats. He takes inner city kids that have never seen so much as the stars in the sky and teaches them how to produce something.

Not as fancy as the one I have but would do. I use an old 60s camper for a chicken house and it cost me only the time to haul it home.

Why do chicken coops always have 2 doors?

Otherwise, they didn't they would be chicken sedans.

Hey - pretty fancy - air in the tires and grass mowed under it. Something is out of whack here - that rig just doesn't fit in with the stone house and wrought-iron gate in the background. If it were mine, it would be sittin' cattywompus in the dirt with four rotted tires and weeds pokin' thru the rust holes.

Hens look happy.

Nest in the glovebox?

I imagine the tires still hold air in order for it to be easily pushed around the yard as you do lawn care. See how they stripped anything that wasn't necessary to make it as light as possible, but they left the steering wheel? On flat ground, I'll bet a 110 pound, 5'2" woman could push it outta the way of a mower.

Pretty good idea if you don't mind a rusted up eyesore in the back yard...

That will last until they figure out rooster crow whenever they want to, regardless of time of day or night.

There is a similar organization here, just plants, no livestock, but its really something to appreciate, and see old building lots and or suitable spaces within the city being used like this.

They have one large garden, and greenhouses not to far from a friends house in the nearby city, in a neighborhood you would not walk thru without fear, which I experienced first hand many times trying to get home from school as I had to take a city bus if I stayed after regular hours, sports or other activities. Instead of old brownstones filled with people wanting to do you harm, now theres a big ole garden. At the time, I wished the whole area would burn to the ground, having gotten chased by stick wielding, rock and brick throwing "natives", and you had no other choice, parents did not taxi you to school, you were on your own, hitch hike, buses, rides, what have you, you disappear, its your problem. I can really appreciate what they do with the community having experienced the above prior to.
