Unusual Chicken Coops

Although most anyone that can hold a hammer and operate a saw can build a chicken coop, it takes real imagination and creativity to make one that is creative or a pleasure to look at. I enjoy coming across out of the ordinary, beautiful, weird, wacky, or magical looking chicken coops and poultry houses from around the web.*  If you know of any other crazy coops, send me a link, post a comment, or email me photo. Thanks! Below are a few of my favorites:
